    The History of the Renaissance World: From the Rediscovery of Aristotle to the Conquest of Constantinople

    SKU: 2621

    $35.00

    A lively and fascinating narrative history about the birth of the modern world. Beginning in the heady days just after the First Crusade, this volume—the third in the series that began with The History of the Ancient World and The History of the Medieval World—chronicles the contradictions of a world in transition. Popes continue to preach crusade, but the hope of a Christian empire comes to a bloody end on the walls of Constantinople. Aristotelian logic and Greek rationality blossom while the Inquisition gathers strength. Kings and emperors continue to insist on their divine rights, but ordinary people all over the world seize power. New currencies are created, new weapons invented, and world-changing catastrophes alter the landscape: the Little Ice Age and the Great Famine kill millions, the Black Death millions more. In the chaos of these events, our own world begins to take shape. Follow the story back; check out the History of the Medieval World and the History of the Ancient World! Hardbound. 816 pages.

    SKU: 13230

    $8.95

    In labyrinths and mazes the path least traveled does make all the difference — but you will also find yourself bridge crossing, escaping from caves, lighting firecrackers, untangling snakes, ringing bells, visiting country taverns, spelling out passwords, and solving a host of other unique problems in Walter Shepherd's fascinating takeoffs on one of the world's oldest intellectual stimulations. There are 50 new puzzles in this book. There are crime names and Christmas mazes, country mazes and city mazes, mazes for all skills and mazes for all seasons of the year. There are even mazes that are games you can play over and over again. Each maze has a story to go with it and often a set of hints and complications. The illustrations are all printed in large size (perfect for framing or creating in craft or needlework for even more amazing fun). Some are classical mazes: others are solid mazes, ripple mazes, short-path labyrinths, avoidance labyrinths, mazes in which you have to visit all rooms and mazes that test your skill in countless other ways. Also included is an introduction to the history of mazes and a special section on maze solving. If somehow you don't get one of the mazes or feel you have to test your own conclusions, a solutions section in the back gives full information. Walter Shepherd has made another significant contribution to cerebral recreations in this volume. You will find hours of pleasure and hours of delightful torture when you show them to friends. Both young and old will have fun solving these puzzles. 128 pages. From Dover Publications. Learn More

  23. Wonders of Old: A Blank Timeline Book of World History

    Wonders of Old: A Blank Timeline Book of World History

    SKU: 4368

    $24.95

    Wonders of Old spans from 5000BC – the Present and beyond History comes alive when your student records significant historical events in his own hand. He will make connections between historical events by recording entries across academic subjects… * kingdoms * empires * rulers * scientists * literature * great writers * musicians * and so much more! It is a proven fact that completing timelines help cement historical facts for students and adults alike. A timeline can become the compilation of a student’s learning. Seeing the progression of time in the form of a timeline will allow your student to gain a better understanding of the flow of history. The truth is… many students may study the fall of Constantinople to the Ottoman Turks, the end of Hundred Years’ War between France and Britain, and the printing of the first book, the Gutenberg Bible, never realizing that these three events all happened within the same year – 1453AD. These events are seemingly unrelated and yet the use of a timeline can unlock the mystery as to why all of these events occurred within the same year. A timeline will give your student a unique perspective of time. By seeing the events of history recorded in linear progression, your students will make connections between those events in history that they might not otherwise make. Wonders of Old is divided into four historical time periods: ancient, medieval, new world and modern. Significant dates are listed at the conclusion of each section as a helpful reference. This hardcover book measures 9×12 and is printed on extra thick 70# paper for durability. Bonus CD-ROM included! The CD-ROM contains the entire Wonders of Old book in digital format so that you can print out multiple copies for additional children or extra pages to insert into your book should you run out of room on a page (doesn’t happen too often!). The CD-ROM also includes timeline category stickers that can be printed on full size sticker sheets to place within the pages of the book. Hardcover. Grades 5-12. 104 pages.
