"The Wonders of Life on Earth" by the Editors of LIFE and Lincoln Barnett. Copyright 1961. Oversized, the book measures 10 3/4" x 13 3/4". This is the lesser seen spiral-bound edition with decorative cover art. The book is absolutely rich with illustrations on almost every page, both color photographs and the most amazing (frameworthy) paintings and drawings. Several of the pages fold out to expose large 3 panel illustrations. The book covers so many geographic areas and creatures and environments of all kinds - from insects to amphibians to fish to mammals.

The book is drawn from Nature articles which appeared in Life magazine from 1957 through 1959, with much new material added, and many new illustrations and photographs published here for the first time. Contents include:
