Hi all,

I've received plate 22 thanks very much, and rather nicely drawn & most
useful it was too. 
But if anyone is able & willing to scan all the plates & captions of
Les Annélides atlas I'd be happy to put them online. 
I gather the text is pretty much unchanged from the second edition
(which is online already).

Thanks folks,
