Judd (1900-1972) spent 43 years at the National Bureau of Standards, Washington. Before his arrival, colorimetry was an embryo waiting to be born. By his retirement it was a fully- fledged technology with its own algebra and geometry, its own network of international committees and its own hagiography. So it is appropriate that the NBS should celebrate his memory by reprinting 57 of his papers in one commemorative volume. The compiler, Dr. David has chosen well. Here are the old favourites: Judd's scholarly introduction to the edition of Goethe's TA~ory o 'f his reception of Land's 2-primary colour his crystal-clear 5-attribute ASTM system for describing visual appearance, and his apt summarisation of Helson's study of colour combinations. Here too are some evergreen classics: Judd's demonstration of the interchangeability of trichromatic co-ordinate systems, his first elucidation of the 1931 CIE chromaticity chart, his first uniform chromaticity scale, his mired scale for colour temperature, and his NBS unit of colour difference.
