Book cover

First Page:

[Transcriber's Note: Each page of this book contained, as a footer, a stanza of poetry, or a prose quotation, which, although pertinent to the text, were not part of it.

I have retained these, moving them to a suitable location between paragraphs, and enclosing them in short markers: .... . Any poetry not enclosed within short markers is an integral part of the text.

The list of typos and corrections is at the end of the book.]
