This sets a new standard for the paleography (although whether for the philosophy is another matter). What is indisputable though in my view is how bad the book is constructed: after paying over $200 for it, and even though it looks perfectly new (I have opened it maybe 10-15 times), pages are falling out. Utterly shameful on the part of Brill (not the authors' fault).
