This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1804 edition. Excerpt: ...Torrentius, and Zcunius. "The brightness of the paper, the amplitude of the margin, and the elegance of the type displayed in this work, are nearly unrivalled; they do honour to the taste and liberality 01 the editors; they shew, that by encouragement and exertion, the art of printing is in a high and progressive state of improvement, ana many readers will be eager to purchase an edition which has so many recommendations from novelty and magnificence."
