An original e-text - I took the book, scanned all the pages, OCR'd them, edited out all the noise, formatted it, added links - thus this text is only available on e2. The writeups have been formatted in a manner such that they appear similar to the original. Spellings are sometimes different from those used in contemporary English. Horizontal rules mark page breaks.

I am considering doing thing with other books, if there is sufficient interest.
