Notes 
The following chapter notes are intended to guide the interested reader into
further study, as well as to perform the usual scholarly function. Mr. Riggert's
Bibliographical Essay (Appendix 4) should be read in connection with the
notes. 
Since they give an extensive coverage of the materials used in compiling
this 
volume, it was deemed unnecessary to include a bibliography of sources.
