DESCRIPTION

E. H. Gombrich's Little History of the World, though written in 1935, has become one of the treasures of historical writing since its first publication in English in 2005. The Yale edition alone has now sold over half a million copies, and the book is available worldwide in almost thirty languages. Gombrich was of course the best-known art historian of his time, and his text suggests illustrations on every page. This illustrated edition of the Little History brings together the pellucid humanity of his narrative with the images that may well have been in his mind's eye as he wrote the book. The two hundred illustrations-most of them in full color-are not simple embellishments, though they are beautiful. They emerge from the text, enrich the author's intention, and deepen the pleasure of reading this remarkable work. For this edition the text is reset in a spacious format, flowing around illustrations that range from paintings to line drawings, emblems, motifs, and symbols. The book incorporates freshly drawn maps, a revised preface, and a new index. Blending high-grade design, fine paper, and classic binding, this is both a sumptuous gift book and an enhanced edition of a timeless account of human history.

H. Gombrich vividly brings the full span of human experience on Earth to life, from the stone age to the atomic age. A Little History of the World download ebook epub, mobi, azw3, pdf.

However, I ascertain that this is condonable as well, based on that fact that the author showed much efforts to cover the history of Asia and Middle East. By and large, this is a great history book that is not just dry, nor boring. 53 quotes from A Little History of the World: 'من يتوقف عن تمنى شئ، فسيتوقف عن الشعور بالتعاسة.
