The Best of LIFE Coffee Table Book (Hardcover)


Although this book is filled with the most incredible and somewhat unbelievable images, some of them are very graphic and could be upsetting for some- not for the feint at heart!

“To see life; to see the world; to eyewitness great events” was the goal Henry R. Luce set for LIFE in the original prospectus. For the next 36 years the editors kept that promise faithfully, reporting on life, the world, and great events with skill, dedication and imagination. Just how well they did their job the reader will see in the 304 pages – 100 of them in color – and 680 photographs (including 77 LIFE covers) that make up this splendid anthology.

Overall this book is in excellent condition, but please note there is no dust jacket.

Please note that these are second hand books and have probably passed through a number of hands in their lifetime.This is part of the charm for me, but for some it may be less so.
You can expect to find some general page discolouration, some creases in the spine and occasionally cover, the odd smudge or perhaps an inscription in the front. Condition will vary from book to book, but this will be reflected in the price and images.
Any major damage such as loose pages, tears, scribbling throughout the body of the book or missing dust jackets will be mentioned.
