Part of the Great Ages of Man series published by Time-Life Books back in the 1960's. My set was purchased by my mother in that era. In 1966 I was eight years old but a voracious reader. My mother invested in these books for me and they have remained treasured, valuable and relevant. ( )

Another great period of world advancement in science, culture, politics and art is covered, this being the age from 1850 to 1914. These books are amazingly adept at covering broad areas of history in a slim volume, in an interesting and useful manner. ( )
