The Online Edition


This work was begun by the late CJ McNew, carried on by the current webmaster and supported by the greatly appreciated efforts of many volunteers.

In HTML it is not always possible to provide an exact visual reproduction of a printed page. In the transcribed pages I have tried to do so within certain limits. I have used superscript1, italics and SMALL CAPITALS when these are used in print. I have not tried to copy the line breaks from print, and have added some white space in order to make the text easier to read.
