Size and Weight means this Encyclopedia is difficult to use
29 January 2017
In principle I think the material in the Encyclopedia is excellent. I prefer the clearer information on the old Gardeners' Encyclopedia of Plants & Flowers. However I have had to return the book to the supplier, who has been more than helpful. There were a few pages damaged by the machine which deals with the binding, and then part of the binding showed in a gap...obviously a few problems, I believe on account of the size of the book. I felt it was too large and too heavy...such that I would only to able to read it sat at a table and the volume open on some sort of a stand, in order to preserve the binding . Should the Encyclopedia come out in three volumes...then I would certainly order a copy.
