The Government of Madras have to be thanked for financing the entire scheme of publication although there is a drive for economy in all the departments. My thanks are due to the members of the Expert Committee who spared no pains in selecting the manuscripts for publication. I have also to thank the various editors, who are experts in their own field, for readily consenting to edit the manuscripts and see them through the Press.
