Bad Scan Like so many of the free books available for the Nook, this scan is very poor. Pagination and printing is off. It may be a good book, but the edition fails as an ebook. It is not worth the trouble, and I am deleting it. I guess you really do get what you pay for¿

This was my first time reading this classic, so I probably only caught some of the typographical errors, but it is quite apparent that the publisher did not set their top proofreader to this task. The scholarship that went into this translation is impressive, but the ebook format makes it very cumbersome to consult the notes at the end of each chapter. I wish I'd read it as a physical book instead.
