The Journal of the Institute of Actuaries, 1907 : With Which Is Incorporated the Assurance Magazine; Index to the First Forty Volumes (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Journal of the Institute of Actuaries, 1907: With Which Is Incorporated the Assurance Magazine; Index to the First Forty Volumes The 40th volume of the Journal of the Institute of Actuaries was completed by the publication of the number dated October 1906. A Combined Index had been prepared on completion of each previous set of ten volumes, as follows (a) an Index to the First Ten Volumes, published in 1864; (b) an Index to the First Twenty Volumes, compiled by Dr. T. B. Sprague as Editor, and published in 1883; (c) an Index to Volumes XXI to XXX, compiled by Mr; G. H. Ryan as Editor, and published in 1896. Having regard to the great practical inconvenience attending the reference to two, or more, Combined Indexes, and also to the fact that the Index to the First Twenty Volumes had for some years been out of print, the Council of the Institute authorized the present Editor to prepare for publica tion a Combined Index to the whole contents of the First Forty Volumes. The labour of compilation has been considerable, but has been materially lightened by the fact that a complete Card Index had been prepared, under the authority of the Council, of the contents of the Journal, for reference by Members in the Hall of the Institute. This Card Index included the whole of the entries in the published Indexes to the First Twenty Volumes, and to Volumes XXI to XXX; and, in addition, a complete Index to the contents of each later number, up to the last current issue. The principles and methods followed in the published Index to Volumes XXI to XXX, which also formed the basis of the Card Index to later volumes, were somewhat more extended in scope than those followed in the Combined Indexes to earlier volumes.
