Unfortunately, Google Books standardly very poor scanning and OCR work has ruined this wonderful and Important book. In all copies of "The Solar Plexus or Abdominal Brain" that I could find online that were "scanned" by Google Books, pages 16, 20, 21 are completely missing. The scanning has bent pages, unnecessary distortions and on the text versions apparently no proof reading has been done as about 90% of all pages have gross errors in OCR. GET IT TOGETHER GOOGLE BOOKS!!!!! If you want to consider yourself a contributor to the preservation of Human Culture PLEASE improve the quality of your products. Project Gutenburg is infinitely more attentive to such things as accurate reproduction. Your products are EMBARASSING. Of the approximately 200 downloadable public domain books scanned by GOOGLE BOOKS which I have personally viewed, at least 80%, have severe OCR errors on at least 80% of their pages, as a conservative estimate. Thus they are not accurately searchable - not to mention readable.
