The object of this little pamphlet is to select laboratory methods that have been found most useful in practical work, and disentangle them from the mass of procedure described in the large works on technic. As a result we have in the space of a few pages clear directions for performing the usual tasks of pathologic histology that are required in ordinary clinical laboratories. The choice of methods is for the most part good, and the directions are plain and easily followed. As the author recommends formaldehyd solution for almost everything, it would seem a wise precaution to warn his readers that constant use of this fixative often leads to serious dermatitis.
