I'll review this page, expected timescale later this evening. If you're active at the moment and want a head start, Chiswick, note that the current outcome would be a Hold on the basis of the same lead issues that were a delay for Historia Plantarum. --erachimatalk 21:54, 12 August 2014 (UTC)
Alright, on review, I see three issues I'd like addressed before passing the article.
The lead section is, as mentioned, brief and inadequate. Please expand it to comply with WP:LEAD as an apt summary of the article.Y
Extended with summaries of contents, illustrations and criticism. Chiswick Chap (talk) 07:50, 13 August 2014 (UTC)
The description of chapter 2 is slight versus the others. Is there a reason for this?Y
Extended with description and linked examples. Chiswick Chap (talk) 07:27, 13 August 2014 (UTC)
You discuss the illustrative plates contained in the book at some length, but do not illustrate the article with examples of any. Why not?Y
Added Plate 13, "a sunken lane in East Devon", as the example discussed in most detail in the text, with NFUR. Chiswick Chap (talk) 06:59, 13 August 2014 (UTC)
Your rationale for the image is incorrect. The image is not being used to illustrate what a sunken lane is, and if it were that would be invalid, since it's relatively trivial to go photograph a sunken lane under a free license instead of using the one he made. Rather, the image itself is a subject of discussion in the article. --erachimatalk 07:14, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

My concerns have been addressed, so the article passes. Good work yet again. --erachimatalk 08:14, 13 August 2014 (UTC)
Many thanks for the review and the perceptive suggestions. Chiswick Chap (talk) 08:20, 13 August 2014 (UTC)
