Description
A reproduction edition of a British one-volume encyclopedia of fun and fascinating information from 1936, this chatty book evokes that bygone age as well as the state of astronomy, marine biology, anthropology, and other sciences at the time. There's plenty to marvel at here, from multifaceted insect eyes, the world's largest plants, and the stupendous size and heat of the sun to the dinosaurs of the ancient past and nightmare denizens of the deep. Originally for readers 9 to 14, "with eight colour plates and nearly 300 illustrations," the book is now a delight to grownups who wish to be amazed again by an incomplete Mount Rushmore, a T. rex walking upright, and plate glass supporting an elephant.
