This book is a direct scan of an old version of this book. There has been no formatting, and the person doing the scanning was not very careful. The print is too tiny to be read comfortably, and the text is very faint in most places, making the book illegible. This book is worth no more than the paper it is printed on. Don't waste your money!

Music resembles poetry ; in each Are nameless graces which no methods teach, And which a master-hand alone can reach. If, where the rules not far enough extend, Since rules were made but to promote their end, Some lucky license answer to the full Th" intent proposed, that license is a rule.
