The Lovereading4Kids comment

A welcome return of a classic title which shows how the world was viewed by a different generation in the years following World War Two. Clarke Hutton’s lithographs take the reader on a journey of exploration through the new worlds as they were found from the time of the Phoenicians and Greeks though Sir Walter Raleigh’s discovery of the America, Captain Cook’s arrival in Australia and Captain Scott and Amundsen’s desperate race for the South Pole. The heroic stories will continue to delight a new generation and the old fashioned illustrations are full of period charm. From the same author who brought you A Picture History of Britain.

A Picture History Of Great Discoveries by Clarke Hutton

About the Author

Clarke Hutton was one of the great English book illustrators and teachers. He was born in London, and early in his life worked in stage design before deciding to become an artist. In 1927 joined A S Hartrick's lithographic class at the Central School in London, a class he took over when Hartrick retired. He also undertook a wide range of commissions specialising in book illustrations especially for children's books.
