He printed up 200 copies in the 1450's and of those only 48 copies (just about a quarter) of that run are still known to exist.
Rough spots, They are taking over the books Amy Pond. Wait.. Who..
I got it, this isn't a rough spot It's the DALEKS!!!
Most books don't have rough spots but total destruction of the text. LOTR was bad, but acceptable. Most ebooks are way worse and shouldn't get the 'rough spots' excuse. They get death.
