    By Bookstore Guy
    This is probably the best of the no-cost editions of Burton. It has actually been proofread and signed by a knowledgeable scholar, who corrected errors and normalized spellings throughout. The footnotes are not live links, but the footnotes are really for the Latinist, since very few contain any English. The footnotes are all found at the end of the text. A very nice job.
