Not illustrated. 1917 edition. Excerpt: ... APPENDIX I THE QUESTION OF ORTHOGRAPHY FSSIBLY the reader has noted in these pages a tendency toward inconsistency in the matter of spelling proper names. I do not deny that I have failed to avoid such inconsistency, but at the outset, after due thought on the matter, I decided that it is most difficult to try and lay down any hard and fast rule for the spelling of the proper names used in this book.
