Abstract

During the years between the two wars a witty and provocative series of little books was issued bearing such titles as Cain, or the future of Crime, Gallio, or the tyranny of science, and similar phrases likely to excite the curiosity of the prospective reader. Indeed, this present contribution might be adorned with some such title as ‘Ariadne Panepistemon, or the future of guides to the literature of science’, a class of reference books of which there would seem to be some need at the present, and which may repay examination.
