Note

This web version, reproduced here with the kind permission of the author, is not an exact facsimile of the printed original. Footnotes are shown next to their entry in squared brackets: [....], plates are not reproduced and the extensive but ephemeral appendices have been omitted. Italics have been removed in interests of speed of text capture. Anomalously I have included the page number cross references but these will not tie in to the web pages. They are simply an indication that another reference to the subject can be found elsewhere in the work.

If you notice scanning or reproduction errors then please draw them to the attention of rob.barnett@ukgateway.net. From time to time we may issue corrected pages.

All rights in this work are the sole property of Francis Routh and this work may not be copied or reproduced in any form except with the prior written permission of Mr Routh.
