I've been searching the web for a copy (in PDF format, or something else I can have printed off) of the book "La Planete Mars et ses Conditions de Habitablitie" Volume II by Camille Flammarion. I don't think I could afford an actual original copy; but I'd follow up any leads on that, too.

I found a copy, from the University of Toronto, at Archive.org; but it's so faint and washed out, it's unreadable. More to the point, the drawings in it are not legible at all.

Has anyone run across a better copy of this book? One that would print out well?

Thanks.

Try this Google Books Copy. Link for book

There is an icon on the right that looks like a snowflake. If you click on that, you can download the file as a .pdf. I imagine it can then be printed. At least you can check it out to see if the quality is worthwhile. Google books may have other copies too. I didn't check for more, but I just downloaded a nice free clean copy to my Nook Tablet.

Thanks for the tip about Google Books. Looks like there's a lot of great free stuff there.

Try this Google Books Copy.


Rookie,

Thanks for the link; but that's Volume 1, which I downloaded and printed several years ago. Vol. 2 seems to be a lot harder to find!
