[This Reprint of one of the rarest of American books has been carefully compared with the original in the posession of the State Library of Pennsylvania. No change has been made in the orthography, and the volumes although not intending to be a fac simile edition, are near enough, that being impossible owing to difference in size of page, type, etc., which varies in the original.] .
