Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I forgot to check to see if this was in hardcover before I made the transaction. It is large and heavy and somewhat difficult to handle in paperback, but other than that I love it!
I just received the book and it matches the writen product description that does not include Apocrypha. The picture is a graphic misrepresentation of the product being sold here.
