[This e text comes in three forms: UTF 8, Latin 1 and ASCII. Use the one that works best on your text reader.

In the UTF 8 version, quotation marks and apostrophes are "curly" or angled. In the Latin 1 version, the word "interréd" has an accent on the "e"; citations use the "section" mark (always in pairs); and the names on the title page are separated by raised dots · at mid line. In the ASCII 7 or rock bottom version, section marks are rendered as the word "Secs.", and the raised dots will display as a simple period.

Typographical errors are listed at the end of the e text.]
