Comments: This is a more popular presentation of subjects dealt with in Tyndall's classical work, The glaciers of the Alps, (1860), in which, through the direct application of the doctrine of regelation he had arrived at a satisfactory explanation of the nature of glacier motion. In the introduction Tyndall gives an eye-witness account of a "breaking out" of the Margelin See on the Aletsch Glacier.

Let me take a moment to let you know how pleased I am not only with your timeliness and help, but also your honesty and commitment to your customers. As an instructor at Duquesne University, I am always telling my students about responsibility and, lately, some of the book dealers have given me unnecessary difficulties... I am very pleased with the service I received from your company and will inform my fellow faculty members that they can look forward to professional service from your book shop. Again many thanks and I look forward to future dealings with your company. - Tom W.
