World Beyond the Poles
By F Amadeo Giannini

https://archive.org/details/f_amadeo_giannini-worlds_beyond_the_poles.o

On January 13 1956 a US Navy air unit penetrated to the extent of 2300 miles beyond the assumed South Pole of the earth. That flight was always over land, water and ice.

Since December 12, 1928 US Navy Polar expeditions have determined the existence of indeterminable land extent beyong both pole points, out of bounds of the assumed "isolated globe" Earth as postulated by the Copernican Theory of 1543.

I'm sorry, I completely dropped the ball on that one. Since there have been no objections, I suspect this is good to roll out as-is? Tom, could you confirm that nothing has changed since you posted the list?

I wanted to add

Metaphysics by Aristotle to the list of recommended texts as it has the foundations of celestial gears and lots of other FE in it. We pull quite a lot from that book.

This one is a RET proponent's book, but the author makes many important points.

Newton, Einstein, and Velikovsky
By Charles Ginenthal

http://immanuelvelikovsky.com/NewtonEinstein&Veli.pdf

"Up until now, we have assumed that Newtonian/Einsteinian theory is as perfect as can be and perfectly reflects the force governing the motions of celestial
bodies. It will be shown that mathematics has played a leading part in driving the entire scientific community regarding these matters of celestial mechanics blindly into  error. This will be examined toward the end of the book that too great a reliance and belief in the absolute validity only of mathematics to explain the universe is not just a modern cosmological blunder, but a repetition of these same blunders of the ancient past like the Aristotelian geocentric theory."
