This Review is For the Dobel Edition!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Centuries of Meditations (Paperback)
WARNING! Amazon sticks reviews for one edition of a book under other editions. Presenting a review of the Dobel edition paperback as a review of the butchered OCR paperback edition amounts to outright lying on the part of Amazon! The Dobel edition published by Cosimoclassics (with the picture of the statue of an angel on the front) is a good edition. The unedited OCR edition is not. Unfortunately, Amazon will not allow me to review both editions! Nor do they give the publisher of the books. Don't accept anything that you would not have bought if you had looked at it in a bookstore. If you get a poorer edition than you ordered, return it and demand a full refund for the cost of the book and shipping both ways!
The text itself is good beyond my ability to describe. Traherne is a poet (although his meditations here are written as prose), a deep thinker, and a devout Christian.
WARNING: The Dobel edition may also be availabe in an OCR! The buyer must beware these days when ording books from Amazon.
A further warning: Amazon pictures accompanying a review may not be of the edition reviewed!
