Vestiges of the Natural History of Creation: With a Sequel
Vestiges of the Natural History of Creation: With a Sequel
by Robert Chambers
Edition: Paperback
Price: £18.99

1.0 out of 5 stars Robert Chambers blanked out., 27 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There are warnings in the description about poor or possible missing pages but you might expect the publishers to take more care than to have the very first page of the text completely blank. Seems to me it was a complete waste of time printing it like that. Say no more.

2.0 out of 5 stars A decent device plagued by annoying unwanted advertising, 24 Aug. 2016

A decent device plagued by annoying unwanted advertising. The item description is not as clear as it could be about what you are getting as you have to pay £10 to switch it off.


The Foundations of the Origin of Species - Two Essays written in 1842 and 1844
The Foundations of the Origin of Species - Two Essays written in 1842 and 1844
by Charles Darwin
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.00

2.0 out of 5 stars Sort of OK if you don't need the Index, 5 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I would not recommend this edition. The text is all in one font without even boldface chapter and section headings - it looks like a 1980s WordStar document and it's difficult to navigate. The main problem is that the Contents page and the Index reproduce the page numbers of the original publication not the page numbers in this book - so that all page references are wrong and useless. Another oddity is that incomplete pages at the end of sections are centred vertically. The original introduction by Darwin's son has Roman numeral page references, whereas this edition starts the Introduction with page number 1 so the first 1842 essay starts 21 page numbers adrift and the numbering just gets worse from there on.
It would have taken the publisher so little effort to make it usable.

3.0 out of 5 stars Kettle up the spout., 11 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Smart design, implementation not so good. The button to open the lid did not work. Sent it back for a refund after a few frustrating days of trying to fill it through the spout.

5.0 out of 5 stars Low cost no frills route to Open Office, 8 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As this is open source software, this review only relates to the supplier's service, media and installation process supplied, not to the functionality of the software itself. Very fast service - the order was placed 5pm and was dispatched the same evening, sent first class post. The mailer contained an invoice and an unlabelled CD with Open Office software and a second completely blank unlabelled CD (it's not clear if there should have been something on it). Virus scan (Bullguard) showed no problems. Installation was straightforward. Installed file folder scanned as virus free. Product up and running with no problems in a few minutes.

Whether Open Office deals correctly with complex Word documents remains to be seen, but this route to installing it seems fine.

Evidence as to Man's Place in Nature
Evidence as to Man's Place in Nature
by Thomas H. Huxley
Edition: Paperback
Price: £3.95

1.0 out of 5 stars A very strange publication - the copy supplied to me ..., 6 Jan. 2015
A very strange publication - the copy supplied to me contains only the first chapter and none of the illustrations. It does not match the "look inside" view of the book which must be a completely different edition and shows all 3 chapters together with the illustrations. Very inadequate and in my opinion misleading.


Essays Upon Heredity and Kindred Biological Problems
Essays Upon Heredity and Kindred Biological Problems
by August Weismann
Edition: Paperback
Price: £13.95

3.0 out of 5 stars Not what you might have expected., 31 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This reproduction of the original is reasonable enough but the title does not make it clear that it is volume 2 of the work and contains only essays 9 - 12. There is no" look inside" and the description does not make this clear either. The only clue is by comparing the page counts with other listings.

I found this title just about useless on a Kindle. There are no sections and no links from the content list so you are left trying to scroll though 500 pages trying to find things.
