    You are correct. at the sight of {something} – Tᴚoɯɐuo Oct 3 '17 at 21:57

    Yes. It's an error or a misprint. It's not the kind error that a native English speaker would ever make in speech. – Colin Fine Oct 3 '17 at 22:01

    No, the other commenters are correct - it doesn't mean something different without of, it's just a mistake. – stangdon Oct 3 '17 at 22:09
