This is a serious attempt to summarize for French medicine the large amount of work done in recent years throughout the world on the chemistry of the tubercle bacillus. It devotes extensive space to the work of Anderson, Johnson, Long, Seibert, Sabin and others working on the chemistry and biology of the tubercle bacillus in this country under the auspices of the National Tuberculosis Association. Unfortunately the author has overlooked much of the American literature since 1928 and has thereby missed an immense amount of material germane to his subject. In general the conclusions are approximately those reached in this country some time ago. The book will be useful in France in supplementing Calmette's comprehensive work on tuberculosis but will be superfluous to the American physician who has access to numerous reviews of this subject in American publications.
