Book Size

After iBooks Author creates your book file for you, make sure the file is no larger than 2 GB (the iBooks Store file size limit). Also, note the following:

  • Readers using a 3G connection can’t download books larger than 20 MB. If you create your sample book manually, make sure you keep the size of your sample book smaller than 20 MB.
  • The larger the book, the longer it takes to download, and the more storage it uses. Movies in particular can be very large. For best results, keep your book file smaller than 1 GB.
  • Books submitted to the iBooks Store using a Paid Books Account can be protected by Apple’s proprietary FairPlay DRM (digital rights management) system, which helps prevent unauthorized duplication of your book. (Movies and audio included in HTML5 widgets are not DRM-protected.)

Do one of the following:

  • Duplicate your book and delete chapters and pages you don’t want to appear in the sample book. If you use this method, be sure to check for broken hyperlinks and glossary terms.
  • Create a new book and copy items into it from the complete book.

  • iTunes link | iBook Store
  • Description - Imagine the excitement of seeing this incredible early period of human development for the first time. Now consider that much of our initial understanding of human development is based upon study of historic embryo collections. You can now look at these historic images of the first 8 weeks after fertilisation and explore for yourself the changes that occur in human development during this key period. This current book is designed as an atlas of the Carnegie embryo stages with some brief notes and additional information covering the first 8 weeks of development. These images are from from the beginning of last century and are one of the earliest documented series of human embryos collected for basic research and medical education on development. I hope you enjoy learning about the amazing early events that begin to make and shape us. This is the second book in a series of educational releases from UNSW Embryology.
