From cave painting to comic strip : a kaleidoscope of human communication by Lancelot Thomas Hogben( Book )

27 editions published between 1949 and 2005 in English and held by 899 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a panorama of the emergence of man as the only literate animal species and a preview to the liquidation of illiteracy on a wor1d scale as a prelude to the unification of mankind. So our story starts with what Julian Huxley happily calls the uniqueness of man. Wherein lies this uniqueness? With-wisdom way beyond much of what passes as modern though, the most notable of the Founding Fathers defined man as a tool-making animal; and Franklin's aphorism does in fact epitomise in simple factual terms one, if only one, characteristic of the uniqueness of our species. Others are equally susceptible to plain statement. Man is the only talkative animal, and man as we know him today is the only picture-making animal.'
