Cuno Hoffmeister, who prior to his death in 1968 was director of the Sonneberg Observatory in the German Democratic Republic, was long regarded as one of the world's leading astronomers specializing in variable star research. The "Mitteilungen źber VerŠnderliche Sterne (MVS)", published by the observatory, is a primary reference for variable star discovery, identification, and photometric investigation. One of Hoffmeister's last projects was the writing of the present book, which was posthumously prepared for publication by his associates, G. Richter and W. Wenzel.
