Role of contributors

    I can't read the text following the names of the contributors despite magnifying the image.

    I had to use the BHL magnifier on 100% for this one. The contributors are Miss Drake del, Prof Findlay direx and Swan Sc (Joseph Swan engraver).

    I checked the Database of Scientific Illustrators (DSI) and found that this is likely Sarah Ann Drake as the author of the article has the same name as her listed teacher (Lindley). Curious that the professor listed as contributor is Findlay. Could this be a typo I wonder?

    (Edited to correct spelling of Findlay).

    (Well done, @jules .To me it seems to be Findlay not Findley.)

    It is - I meant to correct that! (And now have done). Thanks. 😉
