Trying to cure my election-induced depression by buying old books.

I swear I would have bought the reprint, but there was a 1928 edition that was cheaper? So. What's a nerd to do.

Now, you could argue that a barely-more-expensive reprint is better, because it's less likely to fall apart. Which would be true – but the reprint is also just a shoddy printout of the Google Books scan, yikes.

Like, at least add line spacing?

Got my book, and not only is it gorgeous and in excellent condition (which isn't a given, as a cheap 93 y/o book!), it also contains FOLD-OUTS 😍. Bet those aren't in the print-on-demand reprint!
