Not nearly as nice as a book. ;-)

I wouldn't sacrifice my original... it needs rebinding not because
the spine or stitching is in bad shape, but because it was re-bound
in 1955 in an icky university leatherette.
Now that Unicode has all of Lhuyd's characters, however, the book
could be re-published verbatim if it were keyed in. (Though one might
have to choose whether to preserve the long s or not as it often
interferes with reading for most modern readers.)
