Hello /his/. When I was a teenager my grandfather gave me one of his books, 'The Story of the World in Pictures', published in 1934. It's full of photographs and covers the many natural wonders and cultures of the world, while also illustrating the technological progress and arts of the time. With the intent of preserving it I photographed every single page a few years ago (I don't own a scanner, I'm afraid). I stumbled upon the pictures recently and thought you guys might be interested in them, all 303 of them.

It's an interesting little piece of history - images of native cultures and natural wonders long since lost, and some of that optimism that pervaded in the interwar period, that after the Great War we could grasp science and our natural abilities to build a better tomorrow for all mankind - anything was truly possible.
And then 5 years later we began a war that killed 60 million people and culminated in the nuclear destruction of multiple cities...so it goes.

I'm currently uploading them into 3 RARs on Mediafire, and will also post a few of them here.

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls - the Story of the World in Pictures.

The Mediafire upload will probably be ready in an hour or so. I'd also like to note that if anyone has any problems with the quality of any individual image, or would like a better copy of a specific photo from the book, then please ask and state the page number and I shall be happy to do so.

This is wonderful, can't wait for the link to the whole thing.
>some of that optimism that pervaded in the interwar period
The optimism is so palpable and refreshing. The PRIDE in being human which radiates from the preface and contents is particularly inspiring, we don't get that feeling anymore unfortunately. Such intense wonder and awe over nature is also something that's fading.

Indeed. A more innocent time, where you could turn countless elephants into piano keys but not have to worry about them running out. There just weren't enough people to inflict the environmental pressures on them that are so prevalent today.

Ultimately I think I find this book beautiful because it represents those final couple of decades in time before the world became one great monoculture. A time when the world was still full of mystery and awe. A time that won't come back.

The upload is complete. All three parts can be found here:

Part 1, containing images #1 to #129 (I reached #88 in this thread): http://www.mediafire.com/download/cnadkrxvsk7ahwr/Story_of_the_World_in_Pictures_Part_1.rar

Part 2, containing images #130 to #265: http://www.mediafire.com/download/vqlbo9bxm3x5r2v/Story_of_the_World_in_Pictures_Part_2.rar

Part 3, containing #266 to #303: http://www.mediafire.com/download/mognqz2xt2fxpza/Story_of_the_World_in_Pictures_Part_3.rar

With that, I leave you with one of my favourite pictures from this collection - Capitol Hill in Washington D.C., with a zeppelin in the background.

>>52668 I don't find it depressing, I found it reassuring to see how much we've changed for the better in those aspects in a relatively short time. Gives me hope for those other things that have stagnated or changed for the worse since the book was published, that they can successfully be turned around in one's lifetime.

Eh, even the light racism is pretty lighthearted in a 'but they'll get better, of course' sort of tone, and there is little time wasted picking on the 'uncivilized' races for their backwardsness. Instead, it seems to compliment them for what they have accomplished given their undeveloped state of life.

I don't get what the big deal is here.

Expecting a book published in the '30s to look at undeveloped civilisations in a totally non-racist way?

I get that in some ways its offensive to the people published in the book but the concepts of their lifestyle etc. were totally foreign and a sense of amazement to Westerners that were still coming to grips with theories of evolution and such.

tl;dr getting knickers in knots over something that is considered racist now but was not only progressive for its time but a behaviour/attitude I'd 100% expect for the context.

I'm actually wondering if its even possible for people from developed nations to study undeveloped communities without any sort of racism whatsoever. Even the concept seems like something that would stir up the PC-conscious.

Are you implying that they were not less evolved, intelligent, and organized than the Europeans?

Yeah, no shit. There's no such thing as more or less "evolved". You don't know anything about natural selection, and you're just using what you think you know to justify racist behavior.

Dumping stupid racist shit on /his/ is against the rules, so I don't think you'll last long. nb.

If genetics are at play in the rise and fall of civilizations as you seem to imply, then that would mean that up until the late 1400's Europeans were genetically inferior to most of the Middle East. Then, like magic, our genetic quality suddenly skyrocketed for no apparent reason during the 1500's and granted us all the benefits superior genes can offer, including world dominance.

Doesn't that sound pretty god damn stupid?

It would imply some kind of medieval genetic engineering project...

...as if some outside agency engineered Europeans to become storm troopers in their quest for global domination.

Also, I was just about to join the sharing-old-books deal because I own three reproductions of medieval "biology" books filled with wood etchings, but that's a silly idea since you can just download those books of the Goethe project or whatever that's called.

Diseases don't make a species stronger. They just lower the genetic diversity. The only positive thing the Black Death caused was social and economic change.
