About half of this volume is taken up with a discussion of tuberculosis in its various aspects, the principal contributors being D. Lartigau, who discusses its bacteriology, pathology and etiology, and Dr. Knopf, who treats of its diagnosis, prognosis, prophylaxis, and treatment. The symptomatology is handled by Dr. H. W. Berg, of New York, and tuberculosis of the skin forms the subject of a chapter by John T. Bowen, of Boston. All of these articles are, as might be expected, up to date, and convey the current, accepted views of the disease. The subject of yellow-fever occupies over 100 pages, considerable attention being given to the geographic distribution and the origin of the disorder, prophylactic measures, quarantine, disinfection, etc., as well as to the pathology, symptomatology and treatment of the disease itself. Other subjects in the volume are snake-bites and mushroom poisoning, diseases of the uvula and soft palate, and
