"Teutonic Mythology" is a difficult book, dense and inaccessible, and written for the scholarly. However, yet this edition has rendered it completely useless for their purposes. It's not bad if you have a handle on the print version and the languages in question, or just want a portable version for light reading, but it's still far from good.
So beware what you are getting into here, as you'll have to do some excavating to read these books unless you are very well versed in philology.
