National Geographic 125 Years
By Mark Collins Jenkins
Hardcover, 384 pages ($50)

Chronicling 125 years of exploration, discovery and documentation, this handsome oversized souvenir of a collection presents more than 600 images by world-renowned photographers and essays by voyagers, scientists and researchers, all flying the flag of the National Geographic Society, which set out in 1888 to increase and spread geographic knowledge around the world. Now, from the world’s highest mountaintops to its deepest ocean trenches, from its densest jungles to its driest deserts, and across virtually the entire spectrum of its people and its cultures, it not only looks where it’s been, but where it can go next.
