    "no more of"

    Hi, could you please tell me what's mean by "no more of" in the below sentence:

    This treaty presents no more of political limitations than legal limitations.

    Is "no more of" equal to "only"?

    That, I am not sure of. The use of no more of is awkward. Like you, I am confused by what the author is trying to express. Could there be a typo or some typos? Could the author have meant one of these?
    The treaty present no more political limitations than [it does] legal limitations.
