Only connect the prose and the passion ...

A 1902 edition of Don Quijote which I found in a charity shop for £ 2.99 this week (when I saw it I firmly expected it would be ten times that price, and I decided to take it if it was under 10).  It has brown stains on the illustration pages (foxing it’s called, I just learned from an expert) but the other pages are clean, so it is perfectly nice to read.  I can only imagine that whoever fixed the price looked at a few of the picture pages and assumed the staining was throughout the book. Still puzzled why the foxing only hit the pictures - maybe because they are on slightly stronger paper ? does anybody have any clues?
