This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1908 edition. Excerpt: ...Implements, p. 344, figure 503. 4 Plate L, figure 5. Figure b, plate xv., represents a large gorget derived from the dilated parietal portion of a Busycon or Strombus. It is in very good condition; though, like all the rest of these shell objects, has been reduced to a substance like chalk. This specimen is nearly 5 inches long, and a little over 3 inches wide. It was found in North Cayuga township, Haldimand county. There are several other specimens resembling this one in the Provincial collection. One of them, from near London, is 5 inches long and 4 inches wide. It has three perforations in a row, one of them being a little further away from the others which are close together. This and the outer one of the two show signs of wear from the suspension cord. The middle hole is not worn at all, and it evidently was made by mistake, the wearer afterwards discovering that the ornament would not hang straight. It is derived from the lip of a Busycon and is much weathered. The largest shell gorget we have also is made from the lip of a Busycon. It is 7 inches long and 5 wide, and comes from the Teeple farm, Beverly township. In figure a, plate xv., is represented the concave side of a gorget pierced with three holes. It was found in a grave in Onondaga township, Brant county. The edges are very much corroded. Its proportions are: length, 4 inches; width 3j inches. The specimen shown in figure," plate xI., comes from lot 10, concession 3, Onondaga township, Brant county, and is the smallest shell gorget in the Museum. It is lfj inches wide. A gorget from Norfolk county is shown in figure b, plate xiv. The markings on the surface are the natural lines of growth, the object being derived from the lip of a Busycon. It is 3 inches in diameter....
