A secondhand copy, no damage to the dustjacket, the top edge of the text block is spotty/foxed. Around 15,000 BC, early humans who had evolved in Africa and spread out to populate the earth, arrived in Siberia during the ice age. So much water was locked up in the great ice sheets, the world's oceans were 400 feet lower than today and early humans walked across the Bering Strait and entered America. When the ice age ended the straight we filled with water and humans in the Americas were isolated from people elsewhere. This division – with two great populations on earth, each unaware of the other – continued until Columbus "discovered" America in 1492 A.D. This is the fascinating subject of the book which compares and contrasts the development of humans in the "Old world" and the "New world" Full number line. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
