" This electronic edition was prepared by Walter Henry, Preservation Department, Stanford University Libraries during Spring, 1994. The 1982 edition, which is out of print at this time, was scanned and converted to ASCII by Optical Character Recognition (OCR), extensively corrected, and proofread against the printed text. Nevertheless, it is almost certain that errors have crept in during the process of conversion.
The printed text carried the following note:

This electronic edition is not a verbatim transcription of the original, in that minor corrections have been made in the body of definitions where the original text contained obvious and unambiguous typographical errors. These have not been noted, so readers should consult the printed text when in doubt. In most cases, defined terms (whether descriptors or lead-in terms) have been left as they were in the printed text. Exceptions to this rule are discussed in textual notes.
The printed text contained both black and white illustrations, which have been scanned and may be available on some online systems, and color plates, which have not been scanned. [wh]
