Description

This superb book assembles a stunning visual record - including maps, original documents and artifacts, as well as more than 400 photographs (the majority in full colour) - that the Royal Geographical Society and those it has sponsored have gathered throughout its history. The quality and breadth of coverage make this a spectacular record of events and an unrivalled resource, which is not only fascinating to read but breathtaking to look at. Emphasising the human dimension of the RGS's work, the book is a tribute to the determination and sense of purpose of those whose life and work have been closely associated with the Society.show more
