            The papers in volumes numbered higher

    than VI are in various stages of composition and

    editing. Some are in form such as might have

    been submitted by the Encyclopedia's editors to

    the editors of the publishers, some are in the

    author's final form but unedited, some are in the

    author's semi-final drafts, a few are hardly more

    than preliminary drafts or even notes.
