I simply love this book, reading the title alone is thrilling. Reading the book is like stepping inside the past and getting a view of the world long, long, long ago.

The title page says:

"Wonders Of The Heavens, Earth, and Ocean, The Starry Sky, the Vasty Deep, All Continents Of The Globe. Embracing The Wonderful Discoveries And Thrilling Adventures Of The Most Renowned Scientists, Travelers, Pioneers and Explorers."

Beautifully and Elaborately Illustrated With Nearly 400 Engravings.

By James P. Boyd, A.M.
Author of "Building and Ruling the Republic", "Military and Civil Life of U. S. Grant," etc.
