In this edition the entire contents have not been revised. Only small sections of methods dealing with examination of the urine and chemical and serologic examination of the blood have been brought down to date. The usual organization of subjects common to laboratory manuals is included in this volume. The sections on urine and blood, however, occupy a major portion of the text. The methods are described in a simple manner but many of these methods and the apparatus are obsolete and are not in common use in this country. The colored illustrations of blood smears are of the diagrammatic type to be found in some of the older American laboratory manuals. The author has expressly intended the book for the practitioner, the chemist and the student, but it can serve only as an ordinary laboratory textbook which does not meet the specific needs of physician, technician or student.
