This volume contains the testimony of a number of prominent physiologists and others on both sides of the question. Besides the representatives of the antivivsection societies at whose instance the commission took up the subject, we have here the utterances on the subject of such authorities as Sir T. Lauder Brunton, Mr. Henry Morris, F.R.C.S., Major Rogers of the Medical College of Calcutta, Sir H. R. Swanzy, Prof. E. A. Schäfer, Dr. C. J. Martin and Dr. D. W. Buxton, lecturer on anesthetics in the University College Hospital of London. Drs.

Mr. Henry Morris
