Descript: This is a reprint of the old classic. Sadly it is not complete, all the nice maps, charts and drawings are excluded in this release. This is text only, around 98% of it, but what a fascinating text it is!

Recommendation: Absolutely! This is the master, don't be without it. It might not look as much at first, but start read it and you understand.
