2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing but . . . ., 29 July 2009
I agree with other reviewers that the quality of these 'digital' print-on-demand-type titles is pretty poor. The question is this. Do you want to pay upwards of 150 for an original edition of 'The Art & Craft . . ' or settle for something undoubtedly inferior, but evidently cheaper. The choice is yours . . .

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible reproduction of a great book, 7 Jun 2009
This is a photocopy or similar reproduction, and the quality of the reproduction is so bad that not only the illustrations are so dark as to be sometimes almost uniformly black, but the text is frequently unreadable as well. Waste of money.

Please note that these comments refer to the 2008 Sims Press edition, ISBN 144375532X. I have no idea what the quality of other editions might be.

1.0 out of 5 stars Content - Excellent, Print Quality - Very Poor, 9 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Art & Craft of Garden Making (Classic Reprint) (Paperback)
"The Art and Craft of Garden Making" is an interesting read, I can't fault the authors content. No issues with the book there.

However, the book, in this format by Forgotten Books, is a photocopy of a copy which has at some point been housed in the University of California library. The book claims to have been "digitally remastered", but the print is poor quality, small and on some pages nearly impossible to read.

I certainly wouldn't recommend this Forgotten Books publication to anyone who doesn't have the very best of eye sight.

3.0 out of 5 stars Small Print, 18 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found the print hard to read in this reprint. This may have been fine if the illustrations were of a better quality. I bought it because the price was a lot better than an original.

1.0 out of 5 stars POOR QUALITY PRINTING, 29 Jun 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Apparently a photocopy of another edition the text is so poorly reproduced it is almost unreadable and the illustrations are so black you can barely make out what they show. An expensive mistake, don't waste your money.
