Plate LIII.
Is a section of the Bovey formation, in the plane of the Dip of the beds. It is drawn, from the measurements obtained in the first section, given in the text (see p. 1022, &c.), on the scale of 1/168, or 1 inch to 14 feet. The Dip amounts to 12 1/2º, and is in the direction S. 35º W. magnetic. The beds in which fossils are found are those the numbers of which are placed opposite them in the margins.

The word plan (and its variations) appears in some 122 phrases in Macdonald’s Naval, Military and Political Telegraphic Dictionary (Whitehall, 1817) *. That is my count, so far anyway, and they will be presented here in their proper order and in due course.
