About this product
- DescriptionThis historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1916 edition. Excerpt: ... NOTES Chapter 1. The boundaries of Germany; the courses of the Rhine and the Danube. 1.
