as an authority, it becomes a matter of importance to indicate, and as far
as possible correct, his numerous inaccuracies, all the more because many
later annotators have quoted largely from his pages without taking trouble
to verify his statements or to collate them with original sources of
information. Another offender is the late William Chappell, who, in his
