This authentic manuscript from the17th century has been out of print for a very long time and has been quite inaccessible to the general public. 

The electronic text of the excerpts has been transcribed into 2 segments in order to manage the file size for ease of downloading and printing.

This on-line reproduction of the First and Third Books represents the authentic old manuscript  "as close to the original as possible" — rendering  the text and appearance of the 1688 English printing without any interpretation or commentary — both of which are here left for the Spirit of Truth, who will always provide for the seeking and humble in heart.
