The Hundred Years War, Volume 4: Cursed Kings (The Middle Ages Series) - Jonathan Sumption

This volume is every bit as fantastic as the first three. I wish I could say the same about the production values, though; Penn used a really cheap paper for this one. I keep worrying that I'm going to tear one of the incredibly thin pages or that the print is going to smear. Why, why why did they use production values that aren't worthy for a paperback on a book that I intend to keep for the rest of my life?
