It appears that the plates in the original publication are incorrectly numbered.
Each engraving contains a number in the upper left hand corner, which ought to correspond with the caption on the first page. However, some of these are incorrect. Plates 4 and 5 (St George and Hanging Guard) have been swapped over, as have plates 9 and 10 (outside and inside guard with falchion). Plate 15 is missing from the PDF (it may be missing from the book itself).
