The first edition of this book was printed in 1922. It was the original purpose of the authors to collect and review critically preceding and contemporaneous works on this subject that were widely scattered in special journals. The function of the book was to serve as a guide in the study of the chemical aspects of tuberculosis. Since the first edition, so much progress has been made in this field that an almost complete revision of the book was found necessary. The present edition, like the first, holds a unique place among the textbooks on the subject of tuberculosis. The work is divided into three main sections: chemistry of the tubercle bacillus and its products, chemical changes and processes in the host, and chemotherapy of tuberculosis. This organization permits a logical development of the subject and engages with a comprehensive interest the reader whose information on the subject may be
