WITH this issue we complete the first volume of our new series and it now becomes apparent that our decision to change our title to one more truly representative of the journal's content was a wise one. Over the past four issues there has been a steady rise in our circulation in most parts of the English-speaking world and numbers of readers have written to express their appreciation of our present policy. During 1968 a number of important authors, already well-known for their writings on religious subjects have promised us articles covering a great variety both of subject-matter and treatment.

Several people have substantially contributed to the advancement and improvement of the journal. In particular we would like to thank H.H. Prince Sadruddin Khan who has taken a personal interest in this journal and supported it both morally and materially, following the example set by his father the late Aga Khan and by the present Aga Khan in furthering the things of the spirit. Great thanks are due at the same time to the Spalding Foundation for their help and encouragement. We also wish to express our gratitude to Mr. Marco Pallis and to other friends.

As from the Winter issue 1968 to be published shortly, we are enlarging the journal to 64 pages, while retaining the present format. Increased costs unfortunately also necessitate an increase in the selling price, although we feel that this will be more than offset by the addi­tional material we are able to offer our readers. After this issue Studies in Comparative Religion will sell for 7s. 6d. (post 6d.) or $1.25 (post paid). The annual subscription will be 33s. or $5 (post paid). We thank all readers for their support, which we hope will be con­tinued; if all those who find the journal of value will recommend it to other potential subscribers, this too will be of great assistance in the task of building up.
