But I want to add a note about the Kindle edition which has more than your average number of typos. Not just misspelt words but the occasional incomplete sentence. It rather looks as if they created the Kindle edition by scanning a print edition, and the text recognition software hasn't always worked. Lithograph becomes 'Uthograph' or detail = 'detafl'. These errors aren't spread equally throughout the book; there seems to be sections where there are clusters of mistakes and then it straightens out for a bit.
