    Re: Wrinkles In Practical Navigation by Lecky
    From: Alexandre Eremenko

    There are many fold outs, drawings, maps etc. in the Wrinkles. The list of 
    illustrations occupies 3 pages in my edition.
    My experience with print on demand was strictly negative.
    In most cases such book (sold by Amazon) was simply unreadable,
    and I had to return it.
    
    This happened with Gould's book on chronometer, for example. It has 1/4 of the pages completely black.
    I tried to replace, and they could not.
    Finally I found a readable copy free on the Internet.
    
    Alex.

    There are quite a few printings and editions of Lecky's Wrinkles. There may be 
    a fold-out in one or more of those, but nothing worth worrying about. A 
    print-on-demand copy for $20 or less is certainly a reasonable investment. 
    It's an excellent book. Have you already downloaded a PDF copy of it? Do that 
    FIRST!
    
    There are also a great variety of companies that do print-on-demand. Check 
    with them to make sure that a standard page with diagrams will print properly 
    (to avoid the problem Jackson describes) and verify that they are using the 
    exact pdf edition that you want.
