Chladni on Google Books

While doing some light research a short while back (for this post), I hit a minor impasse: the Google Books scans of some figures in an early edition of  Ernst Chladni's book on sound were sadly obscured by folding.

Although I was able to find other digital images of similar scans, I sent in a support request to Google Books, and was surprised when within less than two weeks they had re-scanned the images, properly folding out the pages.

These and other nicely restored images can be found towards the end of the book.
