This is a fine, clean edition of the Hanon exercises, with high quality paper, full size format, good note size and sharp, dark printing. Easier to use than some older editions that have apparently been printed with old, worn out plates. For some reason, the first 11 studies in Part One are laid out on two pages, then after that they are compressed onto one page. It would have been ideal to have the same format throughout, but this is not a big deal, as sight reading these repetitive studies is not hard. The binding is a very good one, w/ sewn in pages in a 'lay flat' binding. Be aware that for only a dollar more you can get it in a spiral-bound version. These truly do lay completely flat. I would have gotten that one had I realized it was available. Also, be aware that some editions of Hanon are sold in three separate parts, whereas this edition has all 60 studies. Overall, this is an excellent edition of these studies. I am finishing up Part One, and the binding is holding up just fine. I won't review the studies themselves, as music educators far more learned than I tend to be sharply divided on the value of Hanon. But if Hanon is for you, I doubt that you will find a better edition anywhere.
