Great book, dreadful production
on 26 June 2010
I bought this as a replacement for a copy which, like so many others, got lent to a friend and never got returned. I was very disappointed when it arrived. My old copy was about 3 cm thick. This version was half that thickness. I soon found why. The text of "Alice" was very small, the print of the annotations in the margins, which is the reason for buying the book in the first place, is so tiny I find difficulty in reading it, even with my brand new glasses from Specsavers. This, far from being "the definitive edition" as is claimed on the cover, is a cheaply produced version whose only merit is that it saves a tree at the expense of becoming virtually useless.
