According to Athanasiadis (1996: 653) and contrary to Parkinson (1980: 16), "All requirements of valid publication of Codomler's thesis [have been] fulfilled (Art. 41.5) - the name of a printer Is stated on the last page of Volume II (Art.30.8.Note 4 )." However, Vol. I in which the name is introduced does not have any mention of a printer and only the cover and title page have actually been printed; the rest is momeographed. - (8 Feb 2017) - M.D. Guiry
