Where I've not been able to find online references, if you become aware of them, please let me know.

If you spot any typographical errors, again please let me know.


Disclaimer: I've typed these references by hand twice, firstly in 1978 and again 2017. Typographical errors have bound to have crept in: I have correct at least one shocker.
