Nice edition, thoghtfully edited,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Love in Excess (Broadview Editions) (Paperback)
I bought this as it was in one of those lists of 'books you must read'. There is much swooning and the verbose declarations of passion are alarming... but it is called Love In Excess after all. Apparently it is the first text in English to fully acknowledge that women can have sexual desire. So without this, no Mr Grey. But we can't blame Eliza for not knowing where it would all lead.
This a nice enough edition, good quality paper,with enough editing to make it easily read, but enough of the original for us to feel the gap in history that we are spanning. Footnotes are given at the foot of each page, and are simple.
