The Field is a significant potential resource of records and Histo features several items in their chronological sequence. Other Field material appears elsewhere in the Citations List at various dates and within the heading of their author.

Fortunately Mullens et al. (1920) presents a by-county listing of ‘all’ known material to that date and it includes notes in Field, many of which were not known to the current authors until its discovery in 2013. The reader is directed to the Mullens paper in the website; it includes a spreadsheet version of the paper itemising Shropshire-related material including the material in Field.

Securing both references to and copies of material in The Field is not easy; for example the Bodleian Library does not have a full set of its volumes and access there is slow and laborious. Those Field items which have been secured, from whatever source, are either given here or, less frequently, under the heading of their authors. Efforts continue to secure access to the remaining known material. In the Citations List items which are not yet to hand are itemised in red. Similarly Species Index references to known but unavailable material appear as red text in yellow cells.

Some Field material which has been examined in its original form, photographed and stored by the authors, is not presented here as the original but as full quotes to avoid paying the reproduction fees. Should researchers require access to the original image please contact the authors.

Field is deserving of comprehensive search for records; a major undertaking with complex logistics and there are currently no plans for it to take place.
