There are numerous ztyes of great, interest which deserve further investigation, but the numl>er of workers in this field is few indeed. The tables which I describe in the sequel are not generally contained in zijes. They have been located by searching through manuscript, cata logues and inspecting large numbers of manuscripts. The computational accuracy of these tables, generally high, has been investigated using electronic computersI3.
