Published in 1932, this is the third edition of an original 1922 volume. The 1922 volume was, in turn, created as the replacement for the Institute of Actuaries Textbook, Part Three, which was the foremost source of knowledge on the subject of life contingencies for over 35 years. Assuming a high level of mathematical knowledge on the part of the reader, it was aimed chiefly at actuarial students and those with a professional interest in the relationship between statistics and mortality. Highly organised and containing numerous mathematical formulae, this book will remain of value to anyone with an interest in risk calculation and the development of the insurance industry.
