George Smith published this work in 1846 and it was originally over 500 pages. I am editing and publishing this important work mainly because I wanted to read it but also to preserve it for posterity. To add value to Smith's work, I compiled his references into one section, researched the citation details, and presented it in the MLA format. This is not a photocopy of a previous edition. I have edited the book line by line to catch any transcription spelling errors, fix formatting issues, add italics as needed, and insert the footnotes properly. Obvious spelling and grammar errors have been corrected but every attempt is made to preserve the voice of the author and the writing style of the time. Sadly, there are some Greek words that I could not transcribe properly. The copy was too poor and my knowledge of Greek is even worse. In each case, the English word followed immediately so no content was lost. I have also added an introduction to the work and a References Cited section which I created in the MLA style using WorldCat.org. For each work cited, I attempted to determine the proper edition used. If I erred on some, at the very least the reader has more information and will be better able to find the proper reference.
