The Great Explorers - Robin Hanbury-Tenison

Robin Hanbury-Tenison has compiled a first-class collection of writings and prints of  THE GREAT EXPLORERS (Thames & Hudson, $39.95).  From the oceanic voyages of the 1500s to the undersea exploration of Jacques Cousteau and on to the vast frontier of the cosmos, this collection continually manages to instill in the reader the same sense of awe encountered by each of these explorers at the moment of discovery. The publisher took great care to produce high-quality reprints of paintings, charts, drawings, and photographs.
