100 Natural History Treasures of Te Papa
100 Natural History Treasures of Te Papa
Since the Colonial Museum opened in 1865 and the first director, Sir James Hector, began collecting items of geological and natural history significance, the collections of New Zealand's national museum have become enormously significant - not to mention enormous.

The objects housed by the Museum range from fossilised bones of the extinct Haast's Eagle and specimens collected by Joseph Banks on Cook's first voyage to deep sea-dwelling fishes and a plethora of insects.

In this fascinating book Te Papa's science team of experts showcase 100 collection objects that demonstrate the breadth and depth of the collection and the museum's important ongoing research. Te Papa's expert curators and collections managers tell the fascinating stories of everything from the colossal squid to the flaming flagfins and from sea spiders to beaver fleas.

100 Things You Will Never Do & How to Achieve the Impossible
100 Things You Will Never Do & How to Achieve the Impossible
Ever fancied travelling through time? Taming a lion? Winning a Nobel Prize? Well, here's how to attempt all that and more. Daniel Smith - author of 100 Places You Will Never Visit - takes you on an entertaining journey through 100 things you will (probably) never get the chance to do. Offering tips and advice on things that you may never be rich enough to do (buy your own island, drink a bottle of 1787 Chateau Lafite, own a Shakespeare first folio); things you might never be brave enough to try (bullfight, base jump from the Burj Khalifa, charm a snake); things you'll hopefully never have to do (escape from Alcatraz, land a 747, play Russian roulette); and even the downright absurd (being in two places at once, making gold, becoming invisible),100 Things You Will Never Do will give you a glimpse of your infinite potential.

1000 Events That Shaped the World
1000 Events That Shaped the World
A fascinating sweep of global developments, this fact-filled book delivers what National Geographic has introduced into households for more than a century: The world and all that is in it. A thousand concise nuggets of text, each focused on one event and numbered chronologically, walk readers through time -from the first evidence of life 3.8 billion years ago to a just-discovered planet beyond our solar system that could harbor life as we know it. Accompanied by hundreds of illustrations and maps, the chosen events give insight into how and why our world has grown and changed. Did you know that the bow and arrow were developed nearly 5,000 years before pottery was made? (Events #16 and #19.) Or that Hamlet (#319) appeared at about the same time as Japan's Kabuki theater (#320) and the first newspapers (#322)? There's much more: Buddha's birth, the understanding of sight, Mercator's mapmaking, Tsar Alexander's freeing of serfs, the Battle of Gettysburg, the debut of toilet paper, D-Day, the first e-mail. A reader can open this book anywhere and find fascinating tidbits of history embellished with quick-read biographies, first-person accounts, and landmark paintings and photos. 1000 Events is sure to be a perennial backlist book, with its well-researched information appealing to readers of all ages. In the winning tradition of bestsellers Visual History of the World and Concise History of the World, this new volume presents facts in the easy-access format that people love.
