    This collection of scientific medals began to appear in volumes 8 of Isis. The eighth article appeared in volume XIV, p. 2I5-i8, pl. 6-9, 1930. The Editor will welcome photographs or suggestions for the fol- lowing parts of this series. It is intended to publish only medals having a sufficient scientific and artistic interest.
