With the eighteenth volume the herculean task of the editors and collaborators of critically compiling this handbook is over. Ten years has elapsed since the task was begun. As a result, material additions to the knowledge then available have been published. Part of this material, incorporated in the present volume by some of the collaborators, comprises 473 pages of text, the remaining 291 pages consisting of the general index to all the volumes. Bound, the entire set occupies a trifle over 4 feet of shelf space. Aside from its physical size we cannot refrain from again recommending this immensely valuable bibliographic and informational tool to all institutions, be they hospitals, research laboratories or libraries. For years to come this reference work will be the source book of information to every biologist who is physiologically minded. In these times, particularly, no single worker can perhaps afford to own the set. Institutions
