In addition to the bound volume, purchasers will receive four annual supplements to be published in 1992, 1993, 1994, and 1995. An exemplary reference which shouldn't be hidden behind the reference desk, as it serves parents (and their precocious offspring) quite as well as it does librarians, teachers, and administrators.
