The Yearbook of the Universities of the Empire, 1926


THE “Yearbook” was first published in 1914 as a handy substitute for a collection of the calendars of the universities of the British Empire. According to the preface, the aim of the editor was to collect from the calendars information of general interest and value to members of other universities, to public bodies, and to the public generally. This is a task by no means to be underrated, and we may say at once that it has been admirably carried out. The arrangement of the book is conveniently simple and consistent throughout, so that in a few minutes a working knowledge of it can be obtained.

Edited by W. H. Dawson. (Published for the Universities Bureau of the British Empire.) Pp. xii + 192. (London: G. Bell and Sons. Ltd., 1926.) 7s. 6d. net.
