The Age of Discovery by Hazel Mary Martell


The Age of Discovery by Hazel Mary Martell

The Illustrated History of the World set covers the entire sweep of history and offers a highly illustrated portrait of global development. The set gives young people a balanced, global view of the world as it explores civilizations from the Maya of Mexico to the Sumerians of the Middle East.

Each volume is organized on a spread-by-spread basis that lets young readers locate subjects with confidence and research topics in considerable depth. Every two-page spread contains a lively, thought-provoking essay accompanied by an array of striking illustrations, full-color reproductions of important artworks, photographs of archaeological finds, detailed maps, and original diagrams. Colorful sidebars on each spread detail concurrent events from around the globe and help develop a chronological and world-wide perspective.
