Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
First, let me state this review is of the Kessinger Publishing edition only, and addresses just the quality of the publication, not the content.

Carefully read the Editorial Reviews: Book Description - "(W)e have chosen to reproduce this title even though it may possibly have occasional imperfections such as missing and blurred pages, missing text, poor pictures, markings, dark backgrounds and other reproduction issues beyond our control." Then change the wording to "We have chosen to create a facsimile of this title even though it definitely has significant imperfections including several missing and blurred pages, missing text, poor pictures, markings, dark backgrounds and other reproduction issues which we couldn't be bothered correcting." They have also chosen to reproduce the original as a 4.25" x 6.5" image on 6" x 9" page, leaving significant white space to distract the reader.

Compare this to the Oxford University Press reprint of William Paley's Natural Philosophy, where the editors, Eddy and Knight, note that "only a few (copies) are now extant. We looked at several of these." The book has been reset in a clear readable typeface, balanced on the page.

In this day and age of computers, scanners, OCR, and high grade graphics programs, there is no excuse for such poor quality production. You could expect it from a $9.95 Dover reprint (don't get me wrong, I have absolutely nothing against inexpensive Dover reprints. I own many and consider them good values), but not for an edition retailing at $38.95.

A great read on the history. I feel the book is incomplete without the tables and pictures showing the different types.
