A PARTIAL LIST OF THE CONTRIBUTORS
THE NEW VOLUMES
THE ENCYCLOPAEDIA BRITANNICA
WITH THE INITIALS WHICH HAVE BEEN AFFIXED TO THEIR RESPECTIVE ARTICLES.
THE LIST OF CONTRIBUTORS here given is necessarily incomplete, inasmuch as the later volumes are still in course of preparation, and all the Contributors have not yet been selected. On the other hand the present List may contain a few names which ultimately will not appear in the final List of Contributors. Death or other cause may prevent certain writers who have undertaken the preparation of Articles from completing the contribution which they were to furnish. A full List, compiled when the final Volume goes to press, will be given later. The present List, however, includes the names of all those who have written signed Articles for the first Volume.
After the few words of description which accompany the names are given the initials of the different authors as they have been affixed to the Articles contributed by them.
The Publishers congratulate themselves that in this List of a thousand names are to be found not only the most famous scholars and writers of Great Britain, but of the whole world.
