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.
