The new edition of Bell's textbook has been thoroughly revised and 123 pages of new or corrected material, forty-eight illustrations—mostly excellent photomicrographs—and more bibliographic references have been added. As in the 1934 edition, the first part of the text is concerned with general pathology, the rest with the pathology of special organs. The same four collaborators have contributed chapters on special subjects. The Mycoses by J. S. McCartney, M.D., is a good brief discussion of the common fungous diseases, and material on moniliasis has been added. McCartney also contributed the chapter on diseases of the liver and gallbladder, which includes new material on infectious jaundice and von Gierke's disease.

The discussion of diseases of the heart by B. J. Clawson
