EDITORIAL NOTE

THE Harvard Club for the Study of the History of Religions, which was founded by Professor Toy in the year 1891, intended to present to him a volume of essays on his seventy-fifth birthday, March 23, 1911. They meant thereby to express their affection for him as a man, and their appreciation of him as a leader in the field of study to which the Club is devoted. By invitation several other friends of Professor Toy not members of the Club became contributors to the work. Another friend, the Honorable Jacob Henry Schiff, assumed, with characteristic generosity, the expense of the publication.

The material of the contributions is necessarily technical, but the several writers have had a wider circle of readers in mind, and have accordingly tried to present their ideas in untechnical language.

Unforeseen difficulties have delayed the appearance of the volume. This delay is particularly regrettable in regard to two or three of the studies, but the dates appended in such cases will show when the articles were written.

In now presenting the work to our friend, and in offering it to the public, the undersigned, as spokesmen for all those who have had part in its preparation, congratulate Professor Toy on his happy achievements in his favorite field of study, and sincerely hope that many years of fruitfulness still lie before him.

DAVID GORDON LYON,
GEORGE FOOT MOORE.
