Acknowledgements: The trilogy is yet to be published *, but there will be numerous acknowledgements in due course (a few appear in the slide show). The research and editing for Volume 1 were conducted pro bono, but were rewarded, as of 2023, by two generous honoraria from private donors, and by commitments toward publishing costs from the Canadian Geoscience Foundation, the Mineralogical Association of Canada and the Geological Association of Canada.

* A complete Volume 1 from the trilogy was published on 02 May 2024! Once permissions were secured, and/or substitutions made, for desired illustrations, there are circa 135 images in 93 numbered figures: the citation is:
