              Objective--The  compilation of all verified  physical  data 
              resulting  from research in the fields of physics,  chemis-
              try, astronomy, geophysics, and technology.
        
                  The  6th  edition was begun in 1950  and  completed  in 
              1981,  in 4 volumes of 28 parts.  The language  is  German, 
              but some English titles appear in this edition.

                  Because  of  the difficulty in adhering  to  the  rigid 
              overall  plan of the 6th edition, the New Series was  begun 
              in 1961 with a more flexible scheme.  There will be no  7th 
              edition,  as  the  New Series is  arranged  to  accommodate 
              future  information.  The preface, table of  contents,  and 
              introductory chapter in each volume are also in English.
