>>>well its page 16 on the text itself<<<Hey Ben, thanks for the clarification. I simply wanted to help
people who may have found that they did not see the quote directly
via the link you posted. I wanted to post the "pdf" page. However,
for the sake of providing the most specific way that people could
find the quote in your link (from a library perspective... if you
can forgive that), let me be even more exact in stating that in the
text it is actually not on "page 16", but in the pretext xvi.
Pagiation generally starts after preface, etc. Although xvi does
mean "16" in Roman numerals, this is not generally understood as the
same as "page 16" whithin the Arabic numbers that we use on the rest
of the pages of our modern books (which you will also find to be
true in this book. Otherwise you would have to call the page listed
as "16" page 33 in this case, and that would really confuse most
people). This is not to disagree or be contrary to Ben's link, but
only to hopefully help those of you who would like to explore Ben's
link in spite of assuming normal modern page numeration convention.
To be more exact, this is on page 8 of the pdf (at least on my
computer), and page xvi of the introduction in the text.
