The great success of the undertaking is demonstrated by the fact that the volumes have already appeared in nine different languages-German, English, French, Italian, Russian, Spanish, Danish, Swedish, and Hungarian.

The translations have been edited by the leading American specialists in the different subjects. The volumes are of a uniform and convenient size (5x7!2 inches), and are substantially bound in cloth.
