"Page numbers in bold indicate a draught, manuscript or other iconographic material relevant to the entry."

"The date in brackets [ie, parentheses --ed] after each ship name is the date of laying down, which is not necessarily (especially in the 19th century) the same as the date of launch."

A note at the start of the General Index indicates that this index "contains the page numbers of all textual references to individual frigates by name," and supplements a separate Alphabetical List of Frigates within the text of the volume itself.
