The images in the PDF and the interactive book (the Read Online button to the left) were resized to compile more manageable documents. Even so, the PDFs are large files and therefore may take some time to download. For quicker viewing, click the Read Online button. Please contact the administrator if you would like to have a copy of any of the higher quality original images.

Pages 287 and 288 were removed by the journal writer, but there is no lapse in the narrative.
