Cheap edition, missing pages

on 1/27/2009

While Thorpe's very old edition/translation of Aelfric's homilies has been superceded by the EETS editions by Clemoes and Godden, it's still nice to be able to get hold of a facing-page translation for quick reading or for teaching purposes. It was therefore a disappointment to see that these two volumes are so poorly produced. The publisher notes: "we have chosen to reproduce this title even though it may possible have occasional imperfections such as missing and blurred pages, missing text, poor pictures, ... dark backgrounds ..." Vol. 1 is missing no pages, but its problem interferes with functionality. Vol. 2 is missing pages 65, 222, 223, 224, 250, 256 (placed several pages too early), 257, 448, 532, and 533, and page 512 is too blurry to read, but it is much easier to use than vol. 1. If you don't have access to the original volumes to get copies of the missing pages, you can get them from google books. For those who would like to use photocopies of pages from this book for teaching purposes: a little less than half of the pages are too dark to photocopy.
