A book I picked up in the 1990's from a second hand book shop somewhere in southern England. I don't know who actually wrote the book but he's used the synonym "Analyst". Written in 1899 during the reign of Queen Victoria the book cover some quite interesting subject which are still relevent today.
I'm personally fascinated with the use of english from a period which is only over a hundered years old.
To be quite honest I've never sat down and read the book from cover to cover but i've dipped into the chapters from time to time. The aspect I find most interesting is his discussion on courses and On the level and on the incline - or gradiants.
Anyway - I've decided to scan the book as images.
When a page loads, then in most browsers clicking on the image will zoom in to allow the text to be read.
