Bertha Morris Parker: Das große Buch vom Leben in der Welt

"The Big Coloured Book of Life on Earth" would be the English title of this educational science book from 1966. Its main illustrations have been originally published by Golden Press in the 1950s.

It's a flea market find, I could spend a lot of time watching pictures of home appliances, vehicles and broadcasting equipment from this area (that's probably the main reason why I love the Mad Men series). The author is Bertha Morris Parker, who is primarily known for the 16-volume encyclopedia set The Golden Books Encyclopedia. A trio of retro kid's books by illustrator Harry McNaught over there.
