I just checked this out of the MAG branch and someone used INK to mark passages. Who does this and why do they think it's okay? Hopefully SPL has another copy because it is too distracting to read as is. SAD PANDA!

"Even the simian Pedro was out of sight, crouching on the doorstep, his red little eyes fastened with animal-like devotion on Mr. Jones, who was in discourse with Heyst in the other bungalow--the conversation of an evil spectre with a disarmed man, watched by an ape."
