The fourth edition of this excellent textbook has much added new material including several entirely new chapters. The subject is broadly handled and all phases of internal medicine are considered in their relation to diseases of the gastro-intestinal tract. The laboratory, clinical and roentgen-ray findings are thoroughly correlated, and the surgical aspect is given due consideration. The illustrations are liberal and helpful. The chapter on the roentgen ray, including the visualization of the gallbladder, covers the subject completely. The dietetic and medicinal treatment outlined is rational, and included in the treatment is a thorough consideration of all forms of hydrotherapy.
