  General Index  

Editor's note: These lectures were originally issued privately and did not receive full publication in book format till Weiser's edition in 1975. Since then many of them have been printed by small publishers in a handy pamphlet format. Several sites have also published the whole series of 10 lectures on the internet, such as the following:

All of the above are based on scans of the original editions, and therefore contain errors. The purpose of publishing these lectures has been to update them in accordance with the presentation of the rest of the Masseian corpus published here. We have now cross-referenced the data contained in these lectures to the rest of the corpus (see the General Index), and have now provided full references which would have otherwise been absent in any other of the published editions.
