About this book

A facsimile edition of a book first published in 1954, this takes the reader across the world, accompanying some of history's great explorers. With sumptuous illustrations, the personalities featured include Christopher Columbus, Vasco De Gama, Sir Francis Drake, Amundsen, Scott and Shackleton. Recalling the look and feel of books from a bygone era, it will appeal to children and adults alike and would make a great gift. Ages: 7+.
