Giant Golden Book of Biology

This beautiful little book from 1961 was designed to introduce children to biology. I just love the cute and stylish illustrations, which touch on the major concepts of a first year biology class.

In this image you can see a cnidarian, a pterophyte, a dinoflagellate and a member of hemiptera... to name a few!

Wouldn't it be grand to own a copy?

I wish that there was something like that for every field :)
