Not the greatest publishing of Shackleton's account.28 Jan. 2015
Henry C. Jeffries
- Published on Amazon.com
The first portion is a bit boring (Shackleton's account of the early sailing period), with MANY typos and misspellings - examples: Boss Sea instead of Ross Sea, a random right paren ) in the middle of a sentence, etc.. Surely these were not Shackleton's mistakes. Just lousy proofreading by the publisher after having scanned the source of their material. Thanks for the preview - I think I will look at other editions, rather than buying this one.
