While hunting for vinyl at my local Housing Works, I came across a series of books published by Time-Life.
The cover was what really caught my attention. The particular book they had was on the 1960's, which I bought.
Doing a little poking around on the internet, it appears that Time-Life published these books as a pictorial survey of each century, covering everything from pop culture to current events. They're pretty interesting and fun to flip through! I've tried to do research, and it appears that there are only six editions, the first starting at 1900-1910.
