1.0 out of 5 stars If publisher has to apologize for quality of reprint I don't need., April 30, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Let it be known that Kessinger Publishing sourced this reprint from Google Books. Every page has Google printed at the bottom. Why they chose this particular edition to reprint eludes me. It isn't the most complete or a first edition or the most beautiful or cleanest scanned or superlative in any way. It has all the faults of the original scan such as underlined words, plus some defects of their own printing process added. Also the binding appears to be just glued together.

The publisher states that "This important reprint was made from an old and scarce book. Therefore, it my have defects such as missing pages, erroneous pagination, blurred pages, missing text, poor pictures, markings, marginalia and other issues beyond our control." This information should have been made available before purchase.

1.0 out of 5 stars NOT set as poetry, January 29, 2011

When viewed on an iPad Kindle reader, there is no break between lines of verse: they are run on, like prose. A bad way to read Pope's verse.
