Instructions for Smooth Reading

Very-well illustrated and well-written description of the history, people, culture, fauna, geology, and geography of the arctic and antarctic regions (as of 1869).

Please let me know of any formatting anomalies you find in the extensive Publications list at the end of the book, or obvious issues in the Index. (I don't expect anyone to read either of those, but a brief visual check might be useful.)

The book is long (over 500 pages), and combined with the 163 illustrations, resulted in very large files (ePub: 16MB, Mobi: 24MB).

Thank you for helping with this project, and if you need more time, please let me know.

P.S. There is a companion book, "The Tropical World", that should become available for Smooth-reading within the next several weeks.

This update uses a more traditional method of allowing text to follow the contours of three L-shaped images, rather than the experimental method used in the earlier versions. The traditional method works better in HTML, EPUB, and MOBI.
