Image sources and acknowledgements
The source of the images is shown on the right side of the title bar, with a link to the appropriate home page. We are most grateful to the
Digital Archives Initiative
at Memorial University, Newfoundland, and to the
Vaughan Evans Library
at the Australian National Maritime Museum for permission to link to images from their sites.
We display images from other sites on the basis that they are in the public domain and/or creative commons.
If we have unwittingly infringed copyright, we apologise - please contact us using the link on the menu bar above so that
we can take appropriate action.
We have tried hard to present the images as well as possible, but obviously we can take no responsibility for the images from other sources. Some of the images are missing, partially missing, blurred, or rotated so that they are difficult to view. Some editions are so tightly bound that it is not possible to make good images of the gutter margin of some pages. We apologise for any difficulties this may cause. We have tried to remedy this where we can, but we feel that those images are still worth displaying.
