Well, this is a free Kindle edition of this book. There are no formatting problems, except lack of any pictures. That is a big mistake, as the text makes reference to the pictures so often, that one wonders how this book is functional without them. The book is just fine, or it would be, if it did not describe most of the pictures in such detail. It really lets you know what you missed in buying this edition. It's not bad, but it's not good either. All I am saying, is that being a history of ART, there should be some ART to see in the book. Common sense isn't so common, I guess.
