I love this book, and always will, but...,

This review is from: The Once and Future King (Paperback)
I've read this book in different editions in the past and it is a fantastic book, one of my faves of all time, but I am part way into The Sword in the Stone,and am finding the poor proof-reading very annoying. Words are transposed such as 'lurky' for 'lucky', words such as 'not' are left out in a way that affects the way the story is understood, etc etc. I'm not usually a particularly pedantic person and can let the odd one go but have resorted now to using a pencil to correct things because I want my husband to read it next and don't want him to get confused and not enjoy a book I love so much!
If one sets out to reprint such a wonderful book, surely one should take the time and care required to make sure it is not so full of mistakes?
