This is a most comprehensive work in two large volumes of nearly a thousand pages each. The author's aim, as expressed in the preface, is to combine in a handbook everything which relates to the chemical examination of these products. He has even gone further and included physicochemical microscopic and colorimetric methods. The first volume is devoted entirely to the urine; the second to the blood, bile, milk, feces, lymph and other body fluids. The work is technical in character and reviews in detail practically every recognized method of analysis of the various substances considered. While the origin and nature of many of the constituents of the body fluids, secretions, excretions, etc. are discussed, the clinical side of the subject is very lightly touched on. The work, therefore, is one for the advanced laboratory worker, who will find in it an almost endless fund of information.
