These volumes were obtained in January I945, thanks to the kindness and courtesy of the Legation of Sweden in Washington. Our reason for devot- ing a special bibliography to them, ahead of our regular bibliography which will appear in the next number of Isis, is obvious enough. The works pub- lished or discussed in Lychnos have remained largely unknown to our readers because of the war; the reviews, it should be noted, do not concern only Swedish or Scandinavian publications, but many others which appeared recently in Finland, Ger- many, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, the Nether- lands, France, or Italy; a few of them are devoted to English and American books or to the translations of such books. We do not usually mention reviews of items which we have not been able to examine ourselves; in this case, however, we had to depend almost exclusively on the information given in Lychnos, for most of the original books were out of our reach. </p><p>Lychnos, it may be recalled, is the annual volume published by the Swedish History of Science Society since 1936, under the editorship of our colleague and friend, JOHAN NORDSTR6M, professor of the </p><p>history of learning in the venerable University of Uppsala. The first volume was reviewed in Isis, 26, I77-80, and the volumes for the years 1936 to 1940 were analyzed in Isis as soon as was pos- sible. It should be noted that these analyses and the one which we are publishing below do not exhaust the very rich contents of Lychnos. Indeed, the field of Lychnos is somewhat broader than that of Isis. The Swedish subtitle of those volumes is Lardoms- historiska samfundets arsbok (Yearbook of the Soci- ety for the History of Learning). Learning is given more space than science, while in Isis the opposite is true. Moreover, some of the publications reviewed in Lychnos, being devoted to the history of educa- tion and learning in Sweden or Scandinavia, would not interest the majority of our readers. Those of our readers who would be especially interested in Scandinavian matters should go straight to Lychnos, </p><p>that is, they should become members of the Swedish group. </p><p>Further information will be found in the article, History of Science in Sweden, kindly prepared by Dr. STEN LINDROTH, of Uppsala, which will ap- pear in a forthcoming number of Isis. </p><p>To conclude, we wish to express our deep ad- miration to the Swedish Society, to its editor, and collaborators who had the courage and perseverance to continue this admirable work in spite of the al- most insuperable difficulties caused by the war. Sweden is giving to all of us a high example which we are, alas, not able to emulate! </p><p>The notes published in this bibliography were selected by me; they were typed by Miss FRANCES SIEGEL, and the typing and proofs read by Dr. ALEXANDER POGO. </p><p>GEORGE SARTON </p><p>Cambridge, Mass.
