    GREAT credit is due to the editor, Mr. T. Rowland Powel, his staff and the voluntary contributors for a further speeding up of the publication of the annual volumes of this subject index. This year, the volume for 1933 appeared only eight months after the end of that year. Although these subject indexes have a permanent value as a record of published work, it is obvious that those who are engaged in investiga tions will wish to have the work of others in the same field brought to their notice as soon as possible. The present volume comprises entries of more than 25,000 articles, selected from periodicals of which a list is given. Of these periodicals, no less than 539 are English and American, but 41 are French, Belgian, Swiss, German and Italian publications. It should, however, be noted that the indexing of English and American periodicals is not complete, because, with few exceptions, no attempt has been made to index periodicals covered by the following publications: Agricultural Index, Engineering Ab stracts, Engineering Index, Index Medicus, Journal of the Society of Dyers and Colorists, Photographic Abstracts, Revue de Geologie, Mineralogie et Crystallo-graphie, Royal Meteorological Society's Bibliography, Science Abstracts and Journal of the Textile Institute. A wide range of subjects has been selected for index ing, but verse and fiction are excluded.
