Google books can be such a disappointment. would be appreciated more if when people that digitize a book for Google that we can download, it would be nice to actually do a word search, highlight and make notes.
Page 191-Chart is not scanned-there are blank pages. SOO Disappointing. I hope this book is rescanned. to include the genealogy chart and better scans of the illustrations.
