Published in London by Folio Society. 2008. First Thus. 4 Fine Hardbacks. No inscriptions or bookplates. Very Good slipcase. Two inch tear at bottom of entrance of slipcase. 4 Hardbacks. What was it like to be there, on the spot, at the very moment when great events took place; when great figures strode onto the world stage; when the wonderful, the terrible, the diverting and the just plain curious happened? Here, in four riveting volumes, we have the story of our world in the words of those who experienced it from the ancient Egyptian Harkhuf as he undertakes to deliver a dancing pygmy to his pharaoh, to John Updike, over four millennia later,watching the Twin Towers collapse against the clear blue sky of a perfect New York day. Our story begins with hieroglyphics and ends with the BlackBerry. VOLUME I - THE FIRST REPORTERS; VOLUME II - DISCOVERING NEW WORLDS; VOLUME III EMPIRE AND AFTER; VOLUME IV - IN OUR TIME. 2032 pages; 24 pages of colour and black & white illustrations in each volume.
