Section one

In order not to bore the general reader, nor clutter the pages with innumerable footnotes whose sole function is to fulfil the rituals of bibliographical exactitude, footnotes are given only for quotations from publications of subsidiary importance, and the main works are listed in a bibliography at the beginning of the section in which they are discussed.
