This is a standard book on lighting published by the Illuminating Engineering Society of America and provides the reader with essential information on light and lighting in simple terms and condensed style. This edition brings the subject up to date and includes chapters on the physics of light, light and vision, and the measurement of light and other radiant energy and chapters on the type of lighting needed for practically every type of industry and avocation in which light is used. For example, twenty-three pages are devoted to lighting in sports, and twenty pages to lighting in aviation. Miniature lamps are given consideration, as well as photographic lamps for taking pictures and for reproduction, projection, television, and radar.

This is an extremely comprehensive handbook and contains a great deal of useful information. It should be in every large library, to be used as a reference book.
