To the Editor.—
One of the objections to the new format of the Archives is that the increase in page height of 7/8 inch will necessitate taller shelf spaces. I am glad to report after careful analysis that there is sufficient blank space on these pages to allow the book binder to cut off the top 5/8 inch and the bottom 1/4 inch after collating, sewing, and backing of the (as yet coverless) volume without sacrificing anything whatever of permanent dermatologic value. Some of the beautiful female heads in the colored advertisements will be partially decapitated, but these pages are almost certainly to be removed previous to this point. By this procedure, the shelf height of the series of volumes will remain the same as it has been since 1923, volume 5.It is true that the increase of page width will cause the new volume to protrude forward 1
