michael: I'd never heard of the author: he's not, I think, one of the better known biographers..
He's well known for this paticular book but I don't know much about him other than that--I'm going to do a browser search and see if I can find any reviews...

>>but I cannot expect the book to have been published in the USA too

It was published by Collier Books which (at the time at least) is/was a subsidiary of MacMillan Publishing Company and the book was pub'd in the US not in the UK...

>>You seem strangely sensitive to matters that are often discussed in this forum

"Strangely"? This is a dtp forum so why would it be "strange" for me to be sensitive to how books are designed?

Oh Wait!!!

Sorry...I'm a little slow on the uptake these days...that was supposed to be a joke...LOL!! Good one...'-}}

>>but are not bothersome to readers.

I'm a reader and they bother me! This isn't some throw away book that one reads in a few hours--a Zane Grey book for example. Just because it's paperbound doesn't mean that it should be any less well designed than a hardbound book.
