I've been meaning to do this for a long time...here's a look at the beautiful and bewildering cover to The Wonderful World : The Adventure of the Earth We Live On. by James Fisher. Art Editor FHK Henrion. (1954, Hanover). Many grateful thanks to Alex Holden for sending me a copy of this book that's in much better shape than my old one.
Judging by the cover, Earth sure has some crazy adventures!
Here's a link to some more scans from this book. I hope to add more soon.
