The publication of this volume, the first in the series of "Rorschach Standardization Studies," by Buhler, Buhler and Lefever, is a real contribution to the field of Rorschach work. Although the study is essentially a statistical one, and will have most direct meaning to Rorschach workers familiar with statistics, it has importance for the clinical psychiatric and psychologic fields, both for its further objective, statistical examination of this widely used instrument and for the new technic—"the basic Rorschach score."

The study is a detailed statistical analysis of over 500 Rorschach records and in this respect is the first publication of its kind.
