As my review indicates, I seriously doubt that the publisher did any
"looking" at all or put in the slightest effort. S & S themselves own the
copyright for an improved edition (WJM's of 1965) and at least 2 other
superior editions (Ward Lock and Routledge, both from 1876) are in p.d. All
would be better. As I wrote "indolence and ignorance apparently rule in the
halls of S & S."

Best,
Rick Walter in Albuquerque
