Professor Tinbergen must hold a record in the number of Festschriften that have been written for him. His students and colleagues have reprinted his essays, as an interesting variation on the usual form of felicitation; and a volume of essays was presented by Bos in 1969. Now, Willy Sellekaerts has produced three volumes towards the same end! In a world of increasing output and diminishing time to read it, it is doubtful whether this Wicksellian phenomenon of exploding Festschriften for a single scientist should be applauded, regarded with amusement, or deplored! Does not the law of diminishing marginal utility apply to Festschriften as well?
