In his preface, Dr. Davis says: "If this book serves as a bridge between the text-book upon the anatomy of the nervous system and the clinical text of nervous diseases it will fulfil its purpose." The need of such a bridge, which is short enough to be easily crossed by the busy student, has been appreciated only in recent years, and Davis has met this need perhaps better than any who have so far tried to fill it.

Approximately the first third of the book consists of general principles of neurologic diagnosis, covering the essentials of nervous system anatomy and localization principles. The remainder consists of excellent descriptions of twenty-nine illustrative cases with history, important questions, discussion and diagnosis in each case. Here are included the chief types of lesions from the peripheral nerves and spinal cord groups to the brain stem, cerebral and cerebellar syndromes. Satisfactory diagrams are given
