We’re still putting “finishing touches” on it, but here are some statistics:
Volume 1 is, counting title page, introductory essays, and copyright page, 386 pages. This includes one blank page set aside for a photo. If we don’t receive the photo in a timely fashion, this page will be deleted. There are, counting the footnotes, 189,000 words. At current count there are 102 photos and illustrations, most of which our readers will not have seen. At very rough count there are about 1700 footnotes mostly referencing original source material so our readers can follow our research trail if they wish.
… A few things to tinker with … not many.
