ALL GONE!

I have available a series of Timeline graphic books. These are reinforced, HARDCOVER, in brandnew condition. I have additional set and have no need for these. Will not break up set and would like to ship them all to same address. One credit per book. PM if interested.

Here are the titles and description:

From the ancient armies of Alexander the Great and Genghis Khan to the Civil Rights era of the 1960s to the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, these graphically illustrated volumes present history in a fun and engaging way—perfect for reluctant readers or those who don’t enjoy history lessons. In addition to the full-page illustrations, each title is packed with historical facts and features a historical timeline.

Stunning Graphic Novels that can reach the most reluctant reader.

Each book contains

  • Compelling Fiction Historical facts
  • An Actual timeline
