Penzer 311-312 (expressing his disdain for the work); Casada (318) writes that "it is important, at least in part, for the reasons Penzer found so objectionable. It brings to the forefront Burton's shortcomings and opens up avenues of thought which needed (and still need) examination." This set comes from the personal collection of bibliographer James Casada.
