1.0 out of 5 stars A classic book, but this particular edition sports terrible print quality
By Cinemakinoeye on June 12, 2020
The print quality of this particular paperback edition is terrible. It looks like a print-on-demand edition of a poorly made scan of the original (see photo). Unreadable, I returned my copy and now I'm on the hunt for a used copy to replace my original paperback edition which had quality print quality. I expect more from the University of Chicago Press.
