In this day when it is so much the fad to gather together a number of treatises within single covers and call it a book, it would seem almost unpatriotic to question the soundness of the method as exemplified in an American conglomeration of the sort, since the custom is in fullest bloom on our side of the Atlantic. The present book being British, however, one may perhaps point out with impunity that it shares with all other tomes similarly put together the fault of lacking completely in cohesion and readability. Presented in the same format and by the same publishers, this index may be looked on as the companion volume to the equally well known index of differential diagnosis of which French is the editor. Dr. Hutchison, who presides editorially over the present volume, has as contributors ninety-one men, some writing only one article and some a great many.
