Great Stuff, Abysmal Printing JobJuly 30 2011

This is a fascinating presentation of "Jekyll and Hyde," along with several other Stevenson tales. These other tales are also annotated. I assume that they were included simply to pad out the material to book length; but they are nevertheless absorbing to read.
There are addenda including period reviews, timelines, and extrapolated floorplans of the Jekyll house. Like the man himself, the domicile presents two faces.
However, it is a strange occurrence that, in many places, punctuation marks are simple MISSING. Mostly, it is periods and commas that are simply not there. When this happens, the next sentence begins with a capital letter, but the period has been "dropped out."
And it doesn't happen with any regularity, rhyme, or reason. But about every one or two pages there will be one or two instances of missing periods. Crazy!
