The publishers tell me that a new edition is required, and express the opinion that it would be a pity if the book were not available, [even for a short time. While, with all modesty, I assent to this, I am also of opinion that it is a pity to re-issue it without drastic revision, even to re-writing. But time presses, and my leisure is so limited at the moment that I can only correct, clarify and amplify a few of my statements in order to make the book more Simple, and promise myself to do better as soon as my engagements permit.
To the original work, which forms Parts I. And II. Of this edition, I have added (with the permission of the Library Association) as a third part my Short Coarse in Practical Classification. This I have modified, expanded, and I hope improved. Thus combined I think the two works will serve, especially if the student undertakes the suggested readings, to give a sound and systematic drilling in classification.
