This Italian monograph on the pineal body will be of interest to American readers chiefly by reason of its extensive bibliography, which includes over 300 references. The literature is covered to 1934; more recent publications of Engel, Saphir, Rowntree and his collaborators and other workers on the physiologic effects of pineal extracts are therefore not considered. The author presents brief summaries of knowledge of the pineal gland from many aspects, historical, phylogenetic, anatomic, histologic and physiologic, the latter including what little is known of its endocrine function and its functional relation to other organs.
