What’s What: A Visual Glossary of the Physical World
Bragonier, Jr. and Fisher
1981

Submitter: I love visual dictionaries and this one is charming. Even though the pictures are all black and white, they are clear and instructive. However, in the age of Google image searching, no one is looking for a book to help them visualize, especially not college students! And things like Vehicles and Audiovisual Communication have changed a LOT since 1981! And who knows, maybe readers of the future will wonder what a book used to look like, or a letter on paper. But this book is no good to our readers here and now.
