LoveReading View on A Picture History Of Great Discoveries

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.
