The first edition of this book was published in 1926 and the third printing in 1933. The fourth edition provides extensive revision, reediting and resetting. Six contributors have died since the publication of the first edition. In the present edition a number of new topics have been introduced. Moreover, the editors and publishers have decided to establish a retiring age for contributions so that new authors and new treatises appear for many subjects discussed by other authors in previous editions. The work is so authoritative, so complete and so thorough that it may be generally recommended as one of the best available works in its field.
