We have republished this book in its original form, maintaining original pagination. We have meticulously optimized each page, but due to the deterioration of the original book that we scanned, there may be some spots where reproduction is less than the clarity of a newly-published book. We feel this is an acceptable compromise to present the book to readers in the format in which it was published.
