Crosspost from Alex’s blog

Almost every student of fluid mechanics knows the Album of Fluid Motion by Milton Van Dyke.

A book with exactly the same title is available since 2003 with much more beautiful images, see for your self.
Alex drew my attention towards the Russian translation of the classical book, which can be accessed online. See the post by Alex.

    I’m the son of Milton Van Dyke, in poor health but still living on the Stanford campus with my mother. Lately (and not so lately) people have been posting all or part of his book online without permission, and in many cases in violation of the copyright. Russia is interesting as they can pay a third party for the rights and we have no say in the matter. I’m not sure how that translates to web publication, but again they can probably pay a small fee and we have no rights to deny them.

    I would encourage anybody interested in the book to visit and purchase a copy. It’s only $25 for the clothbound and $17 for the paper. The original cost was $25 and $15, so you can see they run this as a hobby (my mom takes the orders and ships the books out) and don’t pay themselves.

    Having read this I believed it was extremely
    enlightening. I appreciate you spending some time and energy to put this short article together.
    I once again find myself personally spending a significant
    amount of time both reading and commenting. But so what, it was still worthwhile!
