Tliis is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for geDerations an library sheWes before it was carefully scanned by Google as port of aprojecl 
to make Ihe world's books discoverable online. 

Rhas survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book lo eiiier the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never aubjecl 
to copyright or whose legiil copyrighL lerm has expired. Whether a book is in the pubhc domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are OLir gateways to the past, representing a wealth of hislorv, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in Ihe original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from ihe 

publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage piidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providjngthis resource, we have taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 

We also ask that you: 

+ Make noncommercial use ofthejites We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals^ and we request that you use these files for 
personal, n on -commercial purposes, 

-f Refmiti frifm aalomated quety'ing Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google *s System: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 

use of public domain materials tor these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Mainiain attnbutioii The Google 'Vatermark'' you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

-*- Keitp It legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the pubhc domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to countrv. and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement hability can be quite severe. 

Aboul Google Book Search 

Google's mission is to organize the world's information and to make it universallv accessible and useful. Google Book Search helps readers
