Very badly made book,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Greek Wit a Collection of Smart Sayings and Anecdotes Translated (Paperback)
This volume contains only the second of two volumes ("second series") under the same title published by Paley. Nothing about the book makes this plain, unfortunately. It is a small thin pocket book, which is right for this type of book. The cover layout seems good on the face of it, and seems attractive.
Except... that the image is off-centre on the page. The picture given below is *accurate* - it really is set too much to the right, and slightly tilted down! It looks instantly wrong, for that reason. It is as if the cover design was done for a book which was about a centimetre wider.
Open the book and you find that the pages are scanned images of the original edition. But they have been scanned at too low a resolution, and are always blurry and sometimes faint. The paper is at least good quality, unlike some Lightning Source UK (the printer) books that I have seen.
Nice cover design, but shoddy scanning, and frankly I felt ripped off.
