Notes (which are extensive with many references to other sources)
By the way, the picture on the the dust cover is: "The front jacket shows the Tower of Augustus at La Turbie in the French Alps, erected in the 6th century BC," (sic), which apparently is a typo on the dust cover, because in the text on page 128 it states that it was erected by Augustus in the late first century BC (which actually makes more sense). The blue patch on the lower right of the picture is the Mediterranean Sea.
Also a remark on the use of the word "corn" in the text. "Corn" in this sense is in the British usage: "The edible seeds of various cereal plants, usually the chief cereal plant of a region ... .;" not corn in the maize sense as used in the U.S. and elsewhere.
