Transcribers Notes:

Several non-English proper names have been rendered in ASCI, omitting the
proper accents.

Page headers have been moved to the beginning of the appropriate paragraph
and several very long paragraphs have been split to correspond to the page
headers. See the DOC or PDF versions for the original pagination and map
images.

The following glossary provides references and definitions of unfamiliar
(to me) terms and names.
