This neat little cardboard covered volume is one of a series of which nine others have appeared each dealing with a limited medical subject, in this instance with the infectious diseases. Each chapter consists of a number of dogmatic statements, not unlike the aphorisms of Hippocrates, that are assumed to be established facts with reference to the disease under discussion, all matters of controversy being omitted. The chief interest to nearly all American readers probably lies in a comparison of these views of an authoritative French clinician with our own. To the experienced clinician in this country there is little, if anything, new in this presentation but he will be interested to find how fully he is in accord with these clearly stated aphorisms from a foreign source.
