This book is of convenient size and shape, although not large, covers an extensive subject very completely and is altogether abreast of the times. It is well written, the descriptions in it being clear and full, but without unnecessary verbiage.

The introductory section is devoted to the structure of the nervous system and to reflexes, rigidity, contractures, electrical reactions and lumbar puncture; the next, to diseases of peripheral nerves, while the following sections deal with the structural and functional diseases of the cord and brain.

The illustrations are numerous and well selected. Many are from the author's own collection, and others were supplied by Pierre Marie. Nervous diseases, better than many others, can be illustrated by well-selected photographs. The author has been fortunate in his selection; while a few are not so well produced and printed as could be desired, all are characteristic.

This is a good text-book for students
