Re: Sources

If there are future editions of Roberts, in my opinion it would be best to have the year of the edition. Roberts, 2020, p5  or if there are multiple works by Bury, you need the title keyword and the volume number.

Re: Sources

Thanks Laura. You and I do think alike over imbedding refs in future, for easy reading, in preference to footnotes.
We will of course have a listing here that deciphers every code.
I confess that I am trying to keep the imbedded refs as brief as possible for the sake of the reader.

First for Roberts, my "later work" was ambiguous.  Sorry.
I felt that if there were a reprint of TQD (The Queen's Diamonds) or a revised edition of it, then a later ref would be [Roberts 2018 p111].  So I have suggested a unique identifier for his next new work.  That's why I used 2, for his next book, whatever that might be.  
The original ref implies 1, also 2012.  

For Bury, I was going to treat her two-volume Jewellery as her principal work for our purposes, and the 1 is implied.  However I must check on print dates.  If another Bury work arises then it would be [Bury 2 p44].

Similarly for Munn, I was referring to the mega Munn. I don't think any reprints ever included any revision.  I could be wrong.

Edit: I have been inconsistent over Twining.  The ER is not right.  One work will be chosen as principal for our purposes, and the other would be 2.
