Maybe some others that have read this post of yours that have a copy
in their possession now can help answer your questions. Or maybe you
will just have to talk yourself out of the information all together
(very typical when free is not involved), are you typical? Everyone
that has a copy already is very delighted, and they are running depts
of institutes and universities, so I know better. 
I have been collecting rare books since the sixties, and I have
antique books stacked in a storage area completely full. The area is
large enough to park a large car comfortably. Of all these rare books,
I found the best write-up in the late 1890's and the best picks of all
the antique illustrations to choose from for clip art. It is
absolutely the best information from that era from these sources. You
do not have this kind of information, especially the history that goes
way back. This area of re-search is lagging so far behind, about the
only thing that has changed in the area this diskette contains is some
of the terminology. But that is ok, it is your choice. Down with up.
