A moving text, but formatting unworthy of OUP,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Journals: Captain Scott's Last Expedition (Oxford World's Classics) (Kindle Edition)
This is a fantastically moving work of literature, particularly the last couple of chapters covering Scott's journals from the South Pole to his final camp, but my enjoyment of the Kindle version was ruined from first to last by the absolutely diabolical formatting. As might be expected of a book dealing with exploration, there are quite a few tables and lists reproduced throughout and I don't think that a single one is easily legible. There are also typos aplenty- "Charter" for "Chapter" several times for a start- and this edition is a blot on Oxford University Press's reputation as a serious publisher of literary texts. In fact, I'm not sure that such slapdash work isn't disrespectful to Scott's memory.
