Great book. Terrible translation. Get another version.
on 3 April 2016
To be clear: Meditations is fantastic.
However, the quality of this particular edition is terrible. The text is littered with what looks like bad automatic character recognition (see the attached photo) and bad typesetting, where the gap after the end of one book is just enough to push the book headings to the bottom of the same page, but not on to the next page, where you'd expect it to be.
What's more, the style of the translation is clumsy and antiquated at best: "Upon every action that thou art about, put this question to thyself;" etc. All in all, I strongly recommend buying a different edition of Meditations and always using the "Look Inside" feature before buying any book.
