Description

Product Description

Discover how humans created their world from the objects they left behind - from the US Constitution to the first iPhone - in DK''s latest history book.

From the beginning of human history, the one thing that has defined us is our talent for making things, from basic technology and everyday objects, such as bowls and hand axes, to high-tech inventions, such as supersonic aircraft, smart devices, and Mars rovers.

Objects speak volumes about a civilization, telling us how our ancestors lived - as well as what they believed in and valued. A bronze cat mummy shows us how highly the ancient Egyptians valued their feline companions, while a mechanical tiger toy tells the story of rising tensions between an Indian sultan and European colonizers. With stunning, exclusive photography, History of the World in 1000 Objects shows you the objects that our ancestors treasured - from the jewelry worn by the Mesopotamians to the prized ritual vessels used by the people of the Shang Dynasty - and gives you insight into what gave each culture its own identity.

From astrolabes and airplanes to vacuum cleaners and X-rays, DK uses its hallmark visual style to weave the extraordinary legacy of our creativity into a unique view of world history that will change the way you see the objects all around us.

Where are the details on the greatest objects in history?

This book has lots of pictures and info on lots of different objects. That information is interesting, but I was surprised that major objects received so little detail and info. One small picture & caption about the pyramids? I just don''t understand how the decision was... See more
This book has lots of pictures and info on lots of different objects. That information is interesting, but I was surprised that major objects received so little detail and info. One small picture & caption about the pyramids? I just don''t understand how the decision was made to have 2 whole pages on some objects, but a tiny fraction of one page for other objects.

Lush contents, flimsy binding.
Reviewed in the United States on May 18, 2021
Gorgeous book from DK, as usual, but the hardback binding is really terrible quality. I’ve had 2 now, and the entire book is ready to rip and fall out of the cover. Not recommended, but maybe try the softback instead.

Purchased this for my brother and his family as a follow up to History of America in 1000 objects — great companions for trips to the Smithsonian or just to study — the pictures are gorgeous, descriptions brief but informative.

Excellent - choc full of stunning photos, informative but not highbrow text, much more of a ''coffee table'' book than expected, in a good way. Highly recommended.

Lavishly illustrated and information packed tome. Brilliant book even by DK''s high standards. The 4 stars is because I could not agree mentally with selection of some objects. Great for your home library as well as for gifting. Bargain deal from Amazon, Thank you.
