Remy's Periodic Table II: The Short Period Presentation

Next to Remy's Long Form Periodic Table (H. Remy, Treatise on Inorganic Chemistry, Vol. 1, Introduction and main groups of the periodic table, Elsevier, Amsterdam, 1956, p. 4) is what Remy calls a "Short Period presentation" shown in the appendix, pages 838-939. The author comments:

"The form of presentation used in Table II in which the elements of the Long Periods are divided into two series, so that the short Periods determine the horizontal breadth of the system, is known as the Short Period presentation, as contrasted with the Long Period presentation in which the elements of the Long Periods are each time included in a single series.

"The Short Periods can then be broken up accordingly. Mendeléeff had already used the short-periodic and long-periodic mode of tabulation. The adjacent Table I sets it out as a form which is based directly on that already used by Mendeléeff, but completed by the insertion of the elements discovered subsequently."
