Volume III of this ambitious work deals with clinical pathology and therapy of the endocrine glands. Section5 of Volume III contains a chapter by Dr. Leicher on the changes in structure and functions of the ear, the nose, the throat and the larynx as related to changes in endocrine function; a chapter by Dr. Hirschfeld on the relation of the endocrine glands to diseases of the blood, and a final chapter by Drs. Delbanco and Bungold on the relation of the endocrine glands to the skin. On the whole the chapters are exhaustive, critical and well illustrated; but because of the three general headings of anatomy, physiology and pathology of diseases of the endocrine glands there is a great deal of repetition, overlapping and therefore dilution of this otherwise useful and superior publication, resulting also in increased price.
