Book cover

First Page:

[Transcriber's Note:

This file is intended for users whose text readers or browsers cannot display utf 8 encoded text. Some compromises have had to be made.

Letters that could not be expressed in the latin 1 character set have been "unpacked" and shown in brackets: [´æ] æ with accent [)e] short e (in discussions of poetic metre only) A "dagger" (cross) before dates has been written out as "gest." The "low high" quotation marks of the original text are shown as »guillemets«. Typewriter style quotations marks are used by the transcriber.

Where the printed book showed translations or parallel versions side by side, the e text has consecutive blocks of text.

In some verse passages, boldface was used to highlight alliteration. These letters are generally shown as Capitals, while line initial capitals have usually been converted to lowercase. Note that alliteration involving thorn (þ) is rarely marked, and the letter is inconsistently capitalized. This is probably typographic, but has not been changed.

With a few obvious exceptions such as footnote tags, all brackets are in the original.]
