Publication date: 1 January 1973


The compilation of a reference book is often a long and strenuous process filled with agonizing, unexpected problems. To fully appreciate the magnitude of the factors involved, one has to personally undertake a major project and experience the difficulties first hand. Most of us, however, have the foresight and good sense to avoid this temptation, and are consumers, users, and interpreters of reference books instead. This writer is, alas, a member of the tired, first hand minority.
