Description

More than a geography lesson, this atlas is a catalog of a thousand years of human achievements, both large and small. Who won the first air-guitar championships? Where was the first skyscraper? What is Sweden's main claim to fame? Country by country, city by city, the world's most fascinating firsts are plotted across the globe, with more than 600 detailed picture icons in the areas of exploration, sports, culture, science, and technology. Feature spreads look at firsts down in the oceans and up in space. This atlas is a treasure trove of information that the whole family will enjoy.show more
