Thats a bit of an odd choice for someone to write an afterword..

It says Paul Youngquest wrote the new afterword, on the cover of the book you used. Just thought it was an odd choice, is all.

Ah! Sorry. I just took the cover from Amazon of an edition that is currently in print so that anyone interested would know it on sight. I didnt read that one. I read a very old copy from the 1950's.

Youngquist seems to be some sort of Victorian England scholar.
