AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Collection of previously published articles and reviews written between 1977 and 1982 which Murray himself wishes to preserve. In his preface Murray states : "With very few exceptions, the articles are presented in the order in which I wrote them. Emendations have included the restoration of my original titles for some of the pieces, and also the restoration, sometimes from rough memory, of bits cut out by editors."
