White portions of wrappers faintly dusty, otherwise very good or better. First edition, ordinary issue. One of copies of Samuel Birley Rowbotham , the founder of flat-earthism in the modern era, proved how by shouting loud enough and long enough, you can persuade many people with poorly-honed critical faculties to swallow pseudoscientific hokum. Rowbotham wrote a book, pages long, filled with the results of poorly-designed or spurious experiments, Zetetic Astronomy, Earth not a Globe.
Unless you are learned enough, and patient enough, to wade through it all and and compare it to mainstream scientific treatises, you might end up convinced that yes, Rowbotham was clearly an expert and had made enough good points to be taken seriously.

Tuesday, 27 November London in verticals. Sunday, 25 November Edinburgh again and again. My ninth visit to Edinburgh since I began blogging in A city that I'm very fond of aesthetically; it has so much to give.
From the commanding views from Arthur's Seat and Calton Hill to the majesty of the Castle, the architecture of the New Town, the Old Town that's straight out of a Harry Potter film set, the soaring bridges, the narrow passages diving down steep staircases - a city that's been more engineered than built. This time I felt a need to see more of the Water of Leith Walk; it was not pouring with rain and I was armed with my mm Nikkor zoom, better for architecture.
I'm a great fan of cobblestones. What also makes this shot a 'publisher' is that there are no huge gaily coloured plastic wheelie bins nor scaffolding visible. These two rank high in my list of visual annoyances in Edinburgh. Posted by Michael Dembinski at 1 comment: Links to this post. Labels: architecture , Edinburgh , Great Britain , Scotland.
Saturday, 24 November Tram tips for Edinburgh. Edinburgh's tram network resembles Warsaw's Metro system prior to March - just one single line. It is a boon to tourists arriving at Edinburgh Airport, whisking them into the city centre without being bogged down in the heavy traffic of the A8 Corstorphine Road.
The modern stock is comfortable, has free and fast wi-fi, and as befits a line serving an airport, plenty of luggage space. Below: the tram terminus at Edinburgh Airport. Trams to town every seven minutes every ten minutes in the early morning and evening. Labels: Edinburgh , Scotland , trams , travel. Thursday, 22 November Edinburgh's second Polish statue. Three years ago, the statue of Wojtek the Bear was unveiled in Princes Street Gardens; the Maczek statue, in the quadrangle of Edinburgh City Chambers on the Royal Mile, stands close to the Great War Stone that commemorates the Scottish capital's war dead from both world wars.
Both statues' prime locations reflect the importance to the city of its relationship with Poles and Poland. Labels: Edinburgh , Polish history , WW2 history. Wednesday, 21 November Wider-angle London I usually travel with my trusty and really excellent for the money Nikon D with its kit mm lens; a mildly wide to very mildly telephoto lens. Knowing I'd be in two cities that amaze with their architecture, I elected for this trip Kingdomside to take the superwide mm Nikkor zoom. So here's a bit of London Below: I love every bit of St Pancras station.
It has been so beautifully restored; the grimy brick of my childhood also had its charm I remember when Scammell Scarabs plied the Midland Road. I can imagine Victorian railway officials at work, poring over forms, in those windows to the left, as smoke billowed over the turreted rooftops.

W-wa Jeziorki: November
Saturday, 17 November First frost, What does this tell you: first frost , first frost were both a whole month earlier, on 16 October. Last night the temperature fell to -3C. Monday's installation of the alarm system in Jakubowizna was not completed on account of a poor mobile phone signal, so Pan Darek had to pop over again with an external antenna to finish the job. So a change of plan was required for today, and a lovely morning it was too.
This time five years ago:. Work restarts on Jeziorki Ponds redevelopment. Thursday, 15 November To Tychy. A large and important part of the Silesian agglomeration , population - the size of Norwich , Tychy is somewhat subsumed in the larger whole - Poland's largest conurbation of 2. The city is also of note for its Stalinist workers' district, built in the Socialist Realist style in Home to 6, people, it was intended as a model workers' community.
No pub. Below: Socialist Realism was neo-classical in form; street layouts inspired by Ancient Rome. Labels: Polish cities , socialist realism , travels around Poland.
