Page proofs of the volume bound in a temporary soft jacket. The index had not been compiled at this stage and is therefore not included, and pages 77-80 are missing (possibly having become detached at some point, as a number of the pages are loose). The letters MS are marked on the jacket, indicating that this was Michael Schmidt's copy of the proofs. Schmidt has corrected the proofs throughout in red ink, noting literal errors, adding text to his preface, and making some minor stylistic editorial changes in the essays contributed by other writers. The volume consists of 285 numbered pages and additional 8 unnumbered preliminaries.
