I have downloaded several files

Rudyard Kipling - Palmer, John, 1885-1944
Book digitized by Google from the library of the New York
Public Library and uploaded to the Internet Archive
by user tpb.
Keywords: Kipling, Rudyard, 1865-1936
Downloads: 151

as one example. I chose the Kindle option and downloaded
rudyardkipling00palmgoog.mobi
to my Windows 8 laptop and then to the documents folder of
my 2nd gen Kindle Paperwhite.

Opening the file on the Kindle gives garbage. Paging down
the document ultimately yields readable matter but moving
around within the document is impossible.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
That solved this particular problem but the strange
presentation of several other .mobi files seems wide spread.
