Originally published in 1929, this new edition benefits from a new prologue by Lloyd G. Stevenson, as well as new addenda and corrections: "These corrections, accumulated through the last forty years, are based primarily on suggestions left by Dr. Francis, and collated from the annotations in his several working copies. However, information published since 1929 is not included; such notes would constitute a major revision of the entire work...." -- Excerpted fom page 787.
