This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed.

(emphasis he aimed at, it is repeated; thus, /a myitou, it appears to me; i/thx y.'t fxinrxi Oti -Vf a-c; it appears to ine that you have erred, 3.
