This is a digital copy of a book that was prcscrvod for gcncrations on library shclvcs bcforc it was carcfully scannod by Google as part of a projcct 

to make the world's books discoverablc onlinc. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to cxpirc and thc book to enter the pubHc domain. A pubHc domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, cultuie and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other maiginalia present in the original volume will appear in this flle - a reminder of this book's long journcy from thc 

publisher to a library and rmally to you.

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to thc 
public and we are merely thcir custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to

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

+ Maintain attributionTht Goog^s "watermark" you see on each flle is essential for informingpcoplcabout this projcct and hclping thcm lind 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are lesponsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
bccause we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countrics. Whethcr a book is stili in copyright varies from country to country, and wc can'l offer guidance on whether any speciflc use of 
any speciflc book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearancc in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manncr
