Landmark Giants

Contrasted with the rest of the Landmark books, the Landmark Giants are, as the name implies, larger—about 9"x12" and slightly thicker. Their contents are also typically more broad; with the exception of Americans to the Moon, they tend to cover longer periods of history, larger people groups, or whole cities or regions. In the wild, the books aren't always clearly labeled as Landmark Giants and rarely is the "Giant #" visible; some of them are printed by other publishers and have different covers. Availability and prices can vary wildly. We've provided a list of titles here, essentially in publishing order. Below, you can sort by title or author.
