Excerpt from Life Assurance Primer: A Text-Book, Dealing With the Practice and Mathematics of Life Assurance, for Advanced Schools, Colleges and Universities

The issue of this third edition has been delayed because the plates of the second edition were stolen. This has proved a blessing in disguise, as it necessitated a complete resetting of the book and offered an opportunity to make a thorough untrammelled revision of the entire work; and this has been done. Many additions have been made to the text throughout; and a new chapter has been added dealing with the organization and management of a life company, giving information which students and even company officers have found difficulty in obtaining elsewhere. After each chapter, at the request of the professors in several universities, some questions for students have been added; these can generally be answered from the information supplied in the preceding chapter, but in some instances they call for original thinking, constructive work, or knowledge of the conditions of outside business life. Many changes in conditions have taken place since the previous edition was published five years ago, both in the practice of companies and in the laws affecting vital points in the business. All such matters have been brought completely up to date, while the notation in mathematical sections has been changed so as to conform to the latest rulings of the Actuarial Society of America in harmony with international practice. In other respects the remarks made in the Preface to the Second Edition still apply as follows:

"The only criticism of any consequence which has been made against the Primer is that it is not sufficiently elementary. But the book was not written for children; nor was it prepared for those who, with merely a general education, could read it through at a sitting, and at once understand it all.
