Footnotes

Murray had asked for corrections to Expression (letter from John Murray, 6 November [1872]). William Clowes was Murray’s printer. See letters from J. V. Carus, 7 October 1872 and n. 6, 11 October 1872 and n. 1, and 24 October 1872 and nn. 4, 7, and 10.
The orders referred to have not been identified. The photographs in Expression were reproduced using the heliotype process.
