Not much need be added to the two extended reviews of the first edition of this book (The Journal A. M. A., March 12, 1910, p. 905 and March 19, 1910, p. 1000). In the many new subjects the author has exhibited the same good judgment and judicious attitude, and has been equally clear in description and in the clinical application of methods and findings. Some matter in the former editions has been deleted, and much of the remaining text revised. The book is up to date and is a most satisfactory working exposition of laboratory diagnostic methods.
