This is nothing more than a sampler of books from which you can select patterns when researching or seeking components for your own work. It will be slow building because it is a mechanical task for me. I will select up to six images only from each book to give you an idea of what to expect. Wherever appropriate I will include the chapter headings to show how such compilations are planned.
