This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1899 edition. Excerpt: ...connected with the general reflection preceding.--On the subjv. 1 /, see Hale, Anticipatory Subjv. 59 f. 255. Nauck gives the reading in the text (so La Roche), from a Schol. who probably followed Aristarchus. Venetus A has woa Ti 1 Oiki.--The whole passage from 244 to 255 is filled with unusual images and turns of expression.

See Leaf on 269-272, and Helbig2 318, 395 ff. 282. On account of the neglect of the digamma in axds /roi, Bentley conjectured dxXiis (omitting oi). fivptov then becomes an adverb. 298.
