"Poor printing" according to Jairo Bochi. The 1 star rating refers to the printing quality. This is a reprint of an old book which was scanned with very low resolution, so the pages look very ugly. A funny remark: that some handwritten notes were also scanned (see e.g. pages 19, 27). It seems that Springer haven't had the trouble to scan the book themselves, and they are just printing a pirate copy.
