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. 1894. Excerpt: ... Exegesis, and Vulgate superscription or sentences of the Explanatio, where necessary, from which it was drawn.
