Published by University Science Books, 20 Edgehill Rd., Mill Valley, CA 94941. The first edition was published more than 25 years ago, the third, in 1980. Automated computer-matching procedures are still only an aid to, not a replacement for, the skilled interpreter; and the path to that skill, as emphasized in every edition of this text, is practice.
