VIEWING OF IMAGES
The images may be viewed without payment or further permission,
on the understanding that they have been made available
by the copyright holder for purposes of private study only.
COPYING OF IMAGES FOR PERSONAL USE ONLY
An image may be downloaded to the user's workstation and
stored and one hard copy only may be made, without payment
or further permission, provided this is done solely for
purposes of private study. Every copy, in electronic or
other form, MUST include the copyright notice and reference
as found at the edge(s) of each image. The image may not
be duplicated in any medium for another person or institution.
The user is welcome to show the single personal copy to
a colleague or colleagues for private discussion, though
in electronic form it may be displayed only on the screen
of the user's single workstation. The user is also permitted
to display the single personal copy for purposes of an
academic lecture or seminar, provided that no further duplication
occurs or is allowed to occur. If the image is required
for separate viewing elsewhere, the colleague(s) or student(s)
should be referred back to this server, from which it can
be viewed and downloaded afresh by each individual user:
this will avoid illicit copying from one workstation to
The URL for an image, but not the image itself, may be
incorporated in a user's personal hypertext document. The
purpose of any restriction on the use of these images is
to ensure that image files are always downloaded direct
from the server and not from an unauthorized duplicate
Users should be aware that an image received from this
server has necessarily been compressed before transmission
and will therefore have lost some detail. This loss may
not be significant for most research and publication purposes,
but may assume significance in particularly demanding applications,
for example in the production of a full-sized colour facsimile.
In such cases it may be possible for the copyright holder
to supply the uncompressed file from which the public version
was made. The uncompressed file is too large for convenient
and reliable transmission over the network, but could be
supplied to the user on, for example, a CD-ROM.
OTHER USES OF THE IMAGES
Any other use requires the specific written permission
of the copyright holder, who reserves the right to charge
a fee. Uses requiring such permission include the following:
Publication in any form of hard copy.
Use in television, film or video.
Publication in any electronic form of an image, whether
modified or not.
Duplication of an image in any networked or public site,
or in any "virtual library".
Public display in any form of electronic or hard copy
(except in academic lectures as indicated above).
Duplication for use in any teaching pack.
Applications for permissions of any kind, enquiries concerning
copyright or fees, and requests for traditional types of
hard-copy photography, should be addressed to:
