The second edition of this work is 95 pages shorter than the edition of ten years ago, due to omission of the two chapters in the former edition on the anatomy and physiology of the spinal cord and the brain. The bibliographies and many detailed case reports are also omitted. A comparison of the texts of the chapters on hysteria, chorea and Pott's paralysis showed no significant changes. The chapter on insanity also is nearly the same as before, the former classification on mental disorders being retained in preference to that of Kraepelin.
