Pathogenic plant and animal parasites, general pathology and methods of clinical laboratory examinations are the subjects comprising this manual for medical students in India. By abridging the material, after the practice in compends, the author has set forth a large amount of information, especially in the field of tropical medicine. He worked for a time in Berlin with Erwin Christeller, whose recent death at an early age was widely lamented, and at another time with Unna, the Hamberg dermatologist, also recently dead in his eightieth year. The influence of each of these investigators is evident in this book. For physicians in temperate climates the novelty of the tropical diseases illustrated compensates somewhat for the crudeness of the illustrations. In other particulars the workmanship is as good as the average, or better.
