The subtitle of this book, "with a selection of terms in related fields," shows its real value to the archivist. The interest of members of this group is centered, not on the technical terms of library practice, but on those dealing with archives, maps, and films, and in these respects the book is of value to them. The definitions of archival terms are excellent, and should be of great value to everyone, both in and out of the archival profession, in providing definite and clear statements of terms. The definitions of terms relating to maps and micro photography, especially the latter, are very good. Here we have for the first time a group of terms clearly defined in such language that those who are not acquainted with the technical jargon of photography can understand. The technical library terms are very well done, clear and succinct. The mere perusal of the glossary brings home forcibly the clarity of language. Published in 1943, ex-libris Post Library Fort Monmouth, NJ. Fair condition.
