  • Scope and Contents

    According to a note on MS.9913, folio i verso, part II was written in 1931, part IV in 1943, and parts I, III and V in 1947. The manuscript (MS.9913) is incomplete and does not entirely correlate with the typescript (MS.9914). For example part V, chapter 1 of the typescript is different from the manuscript version, and the latter half of part III, chapter 6 is missing from the manuscript version and is included in the typescript version as part II, chapter 6.
