Without a question the best edition (of any book) I have ever seen. The quality of the binding is worthy of the tag 'library binding'. It is the little things that make this book wonderful. For example, in Book 1 Proposition 2, the proof starts at the middle of the right page and carries over to the next page. In other publications, the reader is expected to turn the page back each time they wish to reference the figure. Nope, the figure is printed again on the next page - thank you. The font is big and clear - yes, even the figures are nice and clear. Behind the dust cover, you will find a green cloth binding with embossed gold print on the back. A lot of love and thought went into the production this edition and it shows.
