Collated page proofs of the volume; these have been photocopied from an earlier set which had been annotated in places by Schmidt. All preliminaries apart from the preface are omitted, as are the part titles, illustrations and plates, and the index. The proofs have been corrected throughout in both green and red ink, although the use of two colours does not appear to reflect a distinction in the type of correction indicated. The notes and references section is in a slightly different format and was stored at the front of the body of the text; this section has been corrected in blue ink. The proofs are also preceded by: a typescript lists of contents, picture credits and photographs; rough notes by Schmidt on page numbering for illustrations; and additional proof of page 81 of the text, from a later stage of proofing, with one correction marked in pencil.
Scope and Content
The archivist has added running numbers to the 15 unnumbered sheets at the front of the file; the bulk of the proofs have printed page numbers running from 14 to 239, although some pages are missing because they were to form part titles and illustrations. Pages missing from the sequence are: 58-60 and 200-202.
