The first edition of this work is extremely rare, and in any case contained a lot of Greek material that the author didn't bother to translate, supposing that such a book would never appeal to more than a very small and highly select readership. It is only now that we at last have a translated, annotated and edited version, but it is still for the select few. The author was rich and didn't have to answer to anyone. My opinion is that the reader would lose little if he were to read only the massive introduction and the the first section of the main text, i.e., stopping at page 114. The second section deals with ancient Greece but in a general manner, and the third section deals with Christianity. The less said about the material at the end, the better (Miner's nonsense). Everything is explained in this new edition, and there is a lot to explain, even if you are highly educated. The possibility of any of this ever being put to practical use in the real world is infinitely remote.
