In July 1993, the Chairman of the Commission on International Tables, A. J. C. Wilson, was succeeded by Th. Hahn. During the Beijing Congress and General Assembly, the new Chairman reported on the present status of and the future plans for the various volumes of International Tables for Crystallography. He used the occasion to discuss this work with a number of interested scientists.
On 1 July 1995, Arthur Wilson died in his 81st year. With him the Commission has lost its Chairman from 1982 to 1993 and Editor of Volume C. We all miss his expertise, his keen interest and his friendly manner very much. In August 1995, the Executive Committee appointed E. Prince, Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA, as the new Editor of Volume C. The Executive Committee has also approved the publication of Volume A1 (subsequently relabelled Volume H) on Maximal Subgroups of Space and Plane Groups, with H. Wondratschek, Karlsruhe, Germany, as Editor.
Detailed reports on the individual volumes of International Tables are given below. Table 16 contains sales and stock figures for the volumes that are currently active.
