Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from What a deal! This is a gorgeous book, with an overview of "everything on earth'. Minimal text, more a house guide (certainly not a field guide-it's big!) than anything, a reference for those who wish only a superfiscial identification of things, not wanting to get into it too much just yet. A preliminary look at everything. And only $35. Free shipping too!
