This is a very interesting and useful book that is unfortunately marred by being housed in a poor e-book edition. For example, the e-book edition does not include any illustrations. Where there is supposed to be an illustration, it includes a note telling you to see the print edition. Also, as an annotation of these key documents, it includes each section of the document only after the annotations for the text. It would be more useful to have the text first followed by the annotations. Finally, the original and the annotations are distinguished from another by use of different fonts resulting in an unpleasant optical experience.
