This volume in the notable series of historical publications sponsored by the Nederlandsch Tijdschrift voor Geneeskunde contains selected letters from the correspondence of fourteen Netherlandish physicians and scientists. The dates of the letters run from June 20, 1550, to Jan. 20, 1870. Among those represented may be mentioned Vesalius, Guy Patin, Descartes, Boerhaave and Camper. As a rule the letters in Latin are accompanied by Dutch translations. Of lively interest are the nineteen portraits of writers. M. A. van Andel writes an instructive introduction in Dutch with a French translation. There are brief biographic notes, mostly in English. The volume is a valuable addition to the literature of medical history.
