Description

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. Not illustrated. 1909 edition. Excerpt: ...two aspects of a kingdom, that of a reign and that of a realm, are in this teaching both present, but indistinguishably interwoven. As 6.
