This latest addition to the text-books on kidney disease and albuminuria seems to have the merit of being a clear, practical monograph of the subject, especially in its purely medical aspects, as, while it includes also the kidney affections that sometimes call for surgical measures, these are left for the student to refer to in especially surgical works. It is also brief in its mention of the usual urine tests, and, as a text-book, perhaps more might have been said as to these. In other respects it seems a valuable work both for the student and the practitioner, and one that can be heartily recommended.
