The author has had as his aim in the preparation of this manual a practical work for the student and the practitioner rather than the laboratory worker. Clearness and simplicity are requisites for such a book; clearness in description of tests and processes, simplicity in apparatus and equipment-not too many methods, but judicious selection of those to be emphasized and recommended. This has been attained satisfactorily. The considerable amount of space devoted to the technic of the microscope is worth while, the illustrations, both colored plates and photomicrographs, are good, and the information given is up to date, while the interpretation of findings is of great practical value. In this edition many subjects are elaborated, others added, some omitted, and the whole work thoroughly revised.
