Instructions for Smooth Reading

Well-illustrated with some color plates, some footnotes, and TWO indexes (one for the book and another for the very large catalog of other books available from the publisher).

No need to attempt to read through that catalog of books, but a quick visual scan to see if it has a consistent appearance would be helpful to me.

The text contains a great deal of information, much of it probably still considered accurate.

CAUTION: The text also contains several gruesome or "politically incorrect" (by today's standards) descriptions that were sufficiently objectionable to elicit comments from Proofreaders to the effect that they were abandoning further reading.

An earlier, companion book, "The Polar World" is also in Smooth-reading until February 12th. They had different publishers, so some of the complexities in one are not in the other.
