The Whole Document

When this document was originally mounted on the web in 2003, many users did not have "high speed connections", so the document was split into sections to allow them to download it "a piece at a time". With "high speed connections" being more common now, I have placed the pdf of the whole book on the site so that it may be downloaded in "one click". Please note that it is a 80 meg document, so may not appear "instantaneously". I have left the "sections" on the site for those who may not have a "high speed connection", or when a specific section has been referenced elsewhere.

 

The Document in "sections"

All files are in PDF format, and the size of the files is listed in the following table as a guide to download time.
The file for Chapter 2 as originally received would have been 33megs, initially I must split it into eight files. I have now “rebuilt” the PDF’s for a number of these files to reduce the size. The resolution of the photographs may have changed, but there is no noticeable difference in quality when they are printed at a “normal” setting on my printer. For those who have downloaded the earlier files, the files that have been combined are parts 2 to 7; part 1 is the same, and the “new” part 3 is the old part 8.
The quality on the PDF files varies; so if some of the text is not crystal clear, do not blame your computer.
