National Geographic Vol. 2 Review

The 1890 National Geographic is something of a dry read but I found a few gems in the old pages like fish-fat being made as butter and an explorer throwing things at a walrus. However, I think even National Geographic knew back then that it had to step up it's game and the plan they laid out in issue 5 of volume 2 was to publish more frequent shorter volumes rather than four long ones.

I have to say I agree with that plan. 

Who should read this book: Lovers of history.
