This supplement to the eight volume series of Pratique médico-chirurgicale (1931) is intended to cover the advances of the last six years. This is done in most instances by short chapters but in some cases the entire article has been rewritten. The editors have exercised all possible care to avoid unproved theories or forms of practice merely because they are new and before their practical utility has become evaluated. Most prominent throughout the volume, the material of which is arranged alphabetically, are the chapters on advances in roentgenography of the various organs. Climatopathology and meteoropathology are treated rather comprehensively. There is so much in this "supplement" that is new and useful in the practice of medicine and surgery that the book may be recommended even to those French reading physicians as a review of medical progress, as the French see it, who do not possess the other volumes of this
