Volume 32: Appendix 3. Reasoned Rejects


This volume contains 2 chapters. The first expands on some brief comments in Volume one on the problems with much of the pictorial evidence from the period and is based on a lecture tour given in 2011 entitled “Most of the Original Evidence is Wrong”.

Chapter 2 provides systematic explanations image by image for the exclusion of many commonly used period illustrations from the corpus.
