Picture History of Great Inventors by Gillian Clements
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Here is an introduction to the great inventors of the world. Bursting with facts, serious and comic, the book describes the lives and work of more than fifty major innovators, with delightful illustrated references to hundreds more. A 'timeline' provides a glimpse into the lives and times of each of the inventors. Spanning a period of thousands of years - from the unknown man or woman who invented the wheel, to the research teams at work today on space technology or on Virtual Reality - Gillian Clements' book is a celebration of the ingenuity of people throughout history. Includes separate timelines on each spread and a glossary explaining all of the terms used in the book with diagrams and easy to follow language.
