About the Author:

Jeffrey P. Mass is at Hertford College, Oxford.

Review:

Mass's excellent 'Summary of classification points', including enlarged illustrations, is likely to prove particularly popular with cataloguers, since it provides clear and illustrated advice on the diagnostic elements of both the types and the legends displayed by each subdivision of the series. Medium Avum ... likely to become the standard catalogue for the series ... the current volume presents two major advances over its predeccessors: firstly, comprehensive and generally clear ilustration of all known Short Cross types; and secondly, a much-improved textual description of each of those types ... by far the most comprehensive catalogue of the series so far published. Medium Avum
