Design brilliance

I found these two books in a thrift store yesterday.  They were book of the month club editions, most likely from the early 1970's.  I was blown away by the illustrations on the covers.  I've seen the PBS/BBC mini series they made from these books but I've never read them. If I can stop marveling over the brilliance of the spare clean illustrations I may try to read them.

They are beautiful, particularly the first one. My fear is that e-books will kill this design niche.
