The five volumes that will make up the 10th edition of this famous handbook are being issued separately. The fifth volume on organs, body fluids, and secretions came out earlier in 1953 and was reviewed in The Journal (Sept. 12, 1953, page 177). Like volume 5, volume 1 is clearly written, logically organized, thoroughly indexed, copiously illustrated, and beautifully printed and bound. It should reach a wider audience than volume 5 because, in addition to its interest to the medical profession, the general methods that are covered here serve also as tools for research in physiological and pathological chemistry and because the individual monographs often are as good as the textbooks available to the general chemist. The methods that are included in this volume are: use of the polarizing microscope on crystals, micro methods including spot tests, electrophoresis, use of the ultracentrifuge, chromatography, counter-current extraction, microscopy, absorption and emission spectroscopy,
