The usual pleasing puzzle from Quixote. Quite easy, I found, solving time, 14 mins. Would recommend these puzzles to beginners, clues self-contained with little cultural knowledge required (either classical or modern) to solve.

Notes on some clues below – happy to explain others, if asked.

* = anagram

ACROSS

1 MIS (CON DUC) T

9 DIOPTRE p (small page i.e. abbrevation for it) in (editor)*

19 ROUNDERS A pleasing, not too obvious, ‘hidden’

DOWN

5 CITRIC ACID Cryptic definition misleadingly presented to look like it might be an anagram. Good

11 NO (LI ME) TANG ERE

17 PERU SAL
