Some excisions have been made from the original text, but short summaries of the omitted portions are inserted. The text is supplemented by a questionnaire,

full notes, a complete treatment of the verb, carefully chosen illustrations, a map of the country in which the scene is laid, and an elaborate vocabulary.
