The diagrams are based on diagrams in the telephones, various diagrams from the internet, and changed in hence of language to be readable in English.

Turn-ratios, are from the text on the induction coils.

Drawings changed, to not violate copyrights.  The drawing used are modified drawings commonly known (scan from manuals from approx 1950), and not protected by copyright. 

The references over are good documentation, based on the same ideas.

That wasn't my point actually. It could be argued that use of a diagram represents fair use in a educational posting.
Ue of eBay pictures is probably a lot more controversial.

The point was to provide a reference for the material, as I knew the source when I saw the table.  The book is a great compilation.

It is my opinion, in general, that posting diagrams without explanations, without context or source, is not very helpful in many, perhaps even most, cases.  For example, the TCI library is full of diagrams taken out of context without any explanation.  People seem to think that a diagram is the ultimate answer to some yet unknown question.
Many telephones come in a multitude of configurations, wired for various service requirements, and the circuits may be even evolve slightly over time, with changed components or component values. Many times a diagram taken from a catalog or technical reference shows only one configuration, and modifications are explained in prose and tables.

When posting a diagram, I think it should be accompanied by a description of equipment, application, service, time frame, source and whatever else someone might need to properly use the diagram. When I post diagrams, I try to summarize the equipment features, some history, and a general frame of context, such as related equipment, earlier, or later types.

When I encounter a diagram that has nothing with it, I most often simply discard itówell, it goes into a big digital bucket when it sits and waitsówhen I cannot determine its provenance, or even authenticity.  The TCI library, for example, is full of such examples. Elsewhere, one can also find compendia of diagrams without references, and it can be hard to link them to an actual piece of equipment, unless one find the exact diagram in another phone. For example, I have spent enormous times in unraveling a compendium of Kellogg diagrams, and still have not accounted for even the majority of them.  One would think it would have been trivial to the originators to write a few sentences about the history of each of those documents. Without that it becomes a waste of time for everyone, one cannot use the diagram for historical studies, unless one finds the same diagram again on a telephone.

I see that point, even when I have had great benefit of those TCI documents.
I have trusted them in being real, but I'm also aware of variants has been made.

E.g. my 193x 202 or D1 made by Associated Telephone company LTD with AE dial.
