Condition: Good. A reasonable reading copy only. Upper wrap a little curled.

Illustrated with black and white photographs & drawings. From the cover: “Traces our rise — both as a species and as moulders of our own environment and future. The book covers invention from the flint tool to geometry, from the arch to the Theory of Relativity. It also explores the social and historical background that gave rise to those inventions. Its grasp of both science and civilization shows man’s ability to understand nature, to control it and not be controlled by it.”
