In recognition of the centenary of the birth of the great Charcot, the French publishers have prepared a history of the famous Salpêtrière, which has had an important place in French medical annals since the sixteenth century. The work is beautifully illustrated with photogravures of the institution and the notable scientists associated with it. A charming contribution on the whole to medical history and that of the hospital!
