The second part of the "Seismicity of the European Area" contains further results of the survey of European seismicity, performed during the period 1959 -1967. It was intended to publish the second part with the shortest possible delay. The first part appeared in 1968 when the manuscript of the second part was handed over to the publisher. Unfortunately, due to unexpected technical difficulties the publica­ tion had to be postponed until the end of 1970. Thus the manuscript reflects the state of knowledge corresponding to the year 1967 when the work on the manuscript was concluded. It was only possible to make minor changes, or to insert additional, very brief information into the catalogue Prague, July 20, 1970 Vit Karnik CONTENTS 1. 1. Introduction 7 1. 2.
