Collingwood, Harry: The Log of the Flying Fish, v1 28 Jun 2008

From: http://www.athelstane.co.uk/collngwd/index.htm

The first edition of this book is dated 1887.

This book has a firm place in British literature, for it was one of the very first in the genre of science-fiction.

A German professor, living for some reason in London, takes on some adventurous and rich Englishmen, and sets off with them in an airship that is made of a material so light that it can rise vertically into the air if you pump out some of the air in its ballast tanks. It can also plunge into the depths of the ocean, because this special material, aetherium, is so strong that it can withstand water pressure to a great depth.

In this vehicle they visit the North Pole, having several adventures on the way, including finding the remains of a Viking ship. They visit a region in Africa where they depose the existing King and install a King who is more to their taste. Then they head off for Mount Everest, where they become the first persons to sit on the summit. Here again they have more adventures of a perilous kind.

Thanks for this.

However, there is a small nit I have to pick with it: the TOC and body are in 'H2' size because there is a </h2> missing in the HTML, at least in the HTML you get when you convert it to HTML with MobiPerl's mobi2html.

This gives an unusually large font when read, even on fixed-fontsize readers like my Cybook.

I have fixed this in the attached file.

Note to self: Don't break other things in the process

Half the book went AWOL. Sorry.
