The New Shell Book of Firsts presents a completely up- to-date picture of the firsts that have, in one way or another, affected all of us and the way we live. The subject is, quite simply, when things began. But the book tells us much more about the everyday than about inventions or technological advances. Football pools, deodorant, personal computers, hamburgers, envelopes, dishwashers, plastic carrier bags, central heating, video games, fax machines and thousands more: the origins of things that have had an impact on our daily lives are faithfully chronicled, providing a rich source of fascination and, frequently, surprise. 675pp. Size: 8vo Medium (8" x 5½" approx.)
