It is provided here at a particularly low cost, mainly to cover materials such as the disk and label plus various associated overheads & fees. It consists of both private and publicly available material including ex libris volumes.

 It is now presented in a convenient Adobe Reader form (.pdf files) suitable for all computer systems. This allows for all the really essential illustrations and photos to be shown as opposed to the text only versions normally available.

 The Adobe reader itself is completely free to download from the Adobe web site, although it usually comes pre-installed anyway as a standard utility on most computers.
