Compiled by the Editor


The table below is a list I have compiled of references scattered throughout the corpus which I have been unable to resolve. As stated in the Intro, the chief reasons are these; wrong volume number/page number/plate number supplied; the work is not available online; Massey's reference is too obscure to trace; no source is given; or it is in a foreign language.

I would therefore be most grateful to anybody who can help me with the following:
