There is a simple title page, no copyright page, no index, and no standard page numbers. The page numbers occur in brackets in-text throughout, but it is difficult to flip through to find a certain passage when you are forced to skim the text just to find a page number. For copyright information, the only information given in the actual book is the ISBN on the back cover, which makes academic citation difficult. Furthermore, Leibniz frequently quotes Greek and Latin in his arguments, but this edition does not translate these lines. I was only able to get the main idea of the quotes because I am proficient in Greek and adequate in Latin. Finally, there are typos throughout where (I believe) Japanese characters are printed in the middle of a word. This makes reading the text difficult in some places, since it is unclear how many English letters are missing. I can deal with the other problems of this edition, but unreadable text is too much of an issue.
To summarize, I highly recommend reading _Theodicy_, but I do not recommend reading this edition. This edition is practically a hard copy of the Kindle edition, which does not help an academic like myself.
