A note to the reader: it is the aspiration of this imprint, small though Bapton Books be, to have as few errors and literals – ‘typographical errors’, misprints – as occur in any average Oxford University Press publication (which, alas, in these thin and piping times, gives us a margin of perhaps five or ten). Any obliging corrections shall be gratefully received.
