    Trying to draw out the span of the entire line of descent for life on earth is a big task. Here Sparks makes primitive gestures toward building a taxonomy for the development of life from millions of years ago, up to the present era. From Bacteria and Plants there is an uneven blossoming of life from the sea and into land animals and mammals. The examination of human life becomes muddled in isssues of ethnicity and location, almost confounding to untangle. Condition is fair with numerous pinholes and small tears and some miscellaneous light staining. Image size is approximately 59 x 21 (inches)
