Excerpt from History of the English Puppet Theatre The author of every serious work of history must decide how he is going to treat the problem of notes and references. He must balance his duty to scholarship and posterity against the irritation of breaking the continuity of his narrative; the foot of the page against the end of the text. In this book I have provided notes for two purposes. Firstly, to give the original authority of every reference to puppet history; and, secondly, to amplify my text with interesting information of secondary importance. These notes are placed at the back of the book. It is not necessary - nor advisable - to refer to them, one by one, while reading the text, and the general reader may well read the book without looking at the notes at all. I would suggest, however, that the inquiring reader may care to glance through the relevant notes after each section of a chapter has been read. In this way his memory may be refreshed, his curiosity satisfied, and his knowledge enlarged. I hope that this procedure will enable my notes to assist and not annoy, to aid the scholar and divert the curious, and to be easily ignored by the rest.
