This page allows users to download individual chapters instead of the entire MSS. The text and format of these chapters is the same as the MSS with the exception that the page & footnote numbering will be contained to each chapter. Users will have to decide whether to cite the full MSS or the chapter version.
Several months will be required to revise the entire MSS. Each revised chapter is being uploaded as it is being completed. [If you should discover any errors in spelling or formatting, please email me.]
