  1. Peabody’s husband Emerson is ranting and railing from the afterlife about all Maspero’s errors. :)

    Seriously, I’m sure it’s mostly okay, but I’m always nervous about nonfiction that might have gotten obsolete.

  2. Non-fiction does have that problem, but on the other hand, that’s true of modern non-fiction too.

    Even the editor’s introduction to Vol. 1 makes some concessions to that effect.

    But there’s no beating the price on these! :D
