This is the eighth volume in this series containing autobiographic sketches and the photographs of contemporary physicians. The present book includes Einhorn, Faber, Küstner, Rieger and Unna. The essays provide excellent analyses of the medical contributions of the writers but fail, as does most autobiography, in any revelation of motivations. Perhaps the editor might ask his contributors to make their stories more subjective and personal, while he himself supplied the objective record of their accomplishments.
