Covers a wide variety of extraneous topics including ancient calendar-keeping. For our purposes the interesting chapters are Chapter IX, "Meteorology as International Science", and Chapter XI, "The Meteorological Observatory" / "The Upper Air".
The latter chapter begins on p. 207 with a chronology of aerial meteorology, giving as references the following:
- Gold & Harwood, "The Present State of our Knowledge of the Upper Atmosphere", Report to the British Association, 1909
- A. McAdie, The Principles of Aerography, Rand McNally & Co., 1917
- C. J. P. Cave, "Upper Air Research", Quarterly Journal of the Royal Meteorological Society, vol. XL, 1914, p. 97
