IN a review of the last published supplementary volume to this work-1154 pages, in two half volumes, bringing vols. 1, 2 and 3 of the second edition of the “Handbuch“up to the end of 1932-it was stated (NATURE, 133, 595; 1934) that the volumes were of the type that filled “the user with awe-inspired gratitude and the reviewer with awe-inspired terror”. A similar effect is produced by the second supplementary volume; it brings the main vols. 4, 5 and 6 up to, presumably, the same date; it occupies, with its index, nearly 1000 pages; and it is apparently just within the 'single volume’ limit.
