A team from the Smithsonian Institution working under the direction of Luhr, who
is with the US National Museum of Natural History, have put together a stunning
picture book of their home planet. The format is reminiscent of an atlas, but
the subject matter is topical rather than cartographic. The sections cover the
history of Earth, the land, the oceans, the atmosphere, and the seven tectonic
plates that underlie the surface. The first American edition was published in
2003; this seems to be a revision or reprint of the 2005 compact edition.
