Gained the impression this tome was a reference table, hopefully indexed, but it is more of a ramble though history dropping snippets of information along the way, be they first hand, second hand or fabled. The reader needs to trawl through to find what he wants (and ultimately it may not be there...). An interesting read but not a reference book, in my opinion.
