I have to give credit to this bookseller- doesn’t hold anything back from the description of this book for sale. I’d be tempted if only for the historical bit, but I’ll pass…

And just for the record, accurate descriptions like this is one of the reasons I buy from this seller (and the fact that you can spend days lost in their physical store) :)
