Subtitled "A Visual Glossary of the Physical World', this enjoyable reference seeks to acquaint us with the names of all the parts of familiar (and unfamiliar) objects by depicting them with the names of the parts all properly labelled. I expect it could even be used to find the name of that little plastic piece on the ends of shoelaces, which would have won a bar bet for me 20 years ago. Mightily outdated for computers and technology, but still a good book to have around when you want to know the name of that raised portion of the bottom of a wine bottle (another lost bar bet, of course).
