Contents

Examination of the contents page indicates that two illustrations [plates] are to be found between pages xii and xiii and between pages 96 and 97. Both of these are folded as they are larger than the size of the volume. These are shown separately in the list below as they do not appear adjacent to their description. Also, readers should be aware that the index refers to the Entry Number.
