It is quite obvious that the publishers of this book just scanned the pages of the original and let a computer program transcribe the text.  With just a quick scan, I found numerous errors of this variety, such as the substitution of "v" for "u."  One of the worst examples of these transcription errors is this "sentence" from page 21:  "ShckiJiO. uik dieth, that worthie lentleman t That."  I'm getting something about a worthy gentleman dying, but that's about it.  Most of the errors are not this bad (as far as I can tell), but they still make the text extremely difficult to read and understand. In addition to the transcription errors, the format is pretty awful.  The book starts with some sort of Google disclaimer, implying that this book was taken from Google Books or something.  The next few pages are scans of the cover and the first few pages of the book, which is understandable.  The table of contents is scanned in a similar way, so there are no active links to take the reader to specific sections of the book.  Furthermore, I can't even tell if the pages on the scanned table of contents are actually accurate to the page numbers the eBook uses.  It is hard to tell when the actual text begins after the introduction, and there is no way to jump directly to it. I am going to try out some of the other Nook editions of this book since they are free, but I'm thinking that I will actually need to purchase a copy of the book to be able to read it in a comprehensible form.
