Sentences are interrupted halfway across the page and begin again on the next line.
Some examples raise doubts as to the author’s knowledge of English: “Whoever opposed themselves to the resolution of the States would be treated as a traitor to the country.” “He was habituated also to be present at the audiences….” “… the young prince was enkindled to act like others….”
Other examples where decipherment is required: “Before his reign began, Erik had commenced to make him[self?] conspicuous by his ambitions….” “…kings and subjects alike are accustomed to think their own affection and choice should be primarily consulted.”
The above examples were taken from the first thirty-seven pages of History of Gustavus Adolphus, after which I called it quits. And while I would like to rate this work higher because of the apparent research contained therein, that is impossible since if a work is so sloppy in its form, can we really be confident of the content? After all, in order to evaluate a work of literature or historical research one must be able to read it without stopping every few lines to figure out just what was the author trying to say.
