    Speaking as an interested non-specialist, I was looking forward to Comfort/Barrett as a means of obtaining access to a wider range of mss at a reasonable cost.

      Speaking as an interested non-specialist, I was looking forward to
      Comfort/Barrett as a means of obtaining access to a wider range of mss at a
      reasonable cost. Of course, I realize that the problems with the book we
      have discussed here render the book not very useful for serious research,
      but I really have no allusions that any investigations I might pursue
      qualify as serious research. In many ways, I had hoped this would something
      like a 16" reflector (a wonderful instrument) for an amateur astronomer.
      Perhaps not in the same category as the telescopes used by professional
      astronomers, but something that would be a real leap forward for most
      amateurs. Unfortunately, many of the errors seem to be, well, errors, not
      inadequacies. All I can say is that I do hope that there will be a corrected
      version or a similar work forthcoming at some point.

      Standards are wonderful; everyone should have one of their own.
