While the first large volume of this handbook of practical therapy as the result of experimental investigation dealt to a large extent with clinical problems from the point of view of the experimentalist, the second volume, consisting of two fairly large sections, is more especially clinical and practical. The book contains a wealth of information of everyday use to the practitioner of medicine, each chapter having been written by an eminent clinical teacher or investigator. If a criticism of so excellent a work is permissible, it would be with regard to the tendency displayed by a number of the contributors to recommend the use of apparently superfluous proprietary medicinal preparations. A council on pharmacy and chemistry to serve as guide to German clinicians is evidently still a consummation devoutly to be wished for.
