This is an excellent little book on the artificial light treatment of children with rickets. While it does not contain new material, it gives most of the available data of our present knowledge of the relation of light to rickets. About thirty pages are devoted to a description of the workings of a light clinic as used in England in public health work. This portion of the book would have probably only a news interest to American physicians.
