INDEXES TO REFERENCE BOOKS Dear Madam, The sad answer to Mr G. Burger's interesting suggestion (April 1964) is that the separate offer and sale of indexes to scientific books could never possibly be done without financial loss. As he mentions, such indexes would never amount to more than a few extra sheets; no one will pay more than a few pence for a few sheets of anything; it costs just as much to advise scientists about such a pamphlet as it does about a 10 guinea book; and the problems of stocking such trifles, and the fiddling accountancy involved, are alas impossible to entertain. Yours faithfully, P. J. EDMONDS, Chairman, Technical and Scientific Group. The Publishers Association, 19 Bedford Square, London WC1. 28th May 1964
