This edition, the third, has been completely revised and enlarged. The publishers reset the entire book, thereby affording opportunity for the radical changes that have been made. Two new chapters have been introduced: one on the reciprocal relations between pulmonary tuberculosis and certain physiologic and pathologic processes, the other on the medicolegal and insurance aspects of tuberculosis.

This work has undoubtedly been the best "single volume text" in English on pulmonary tuberculosis, and the present edition only serves to make its position more tenable. It is clearly written and well arranged for easy reference; all cardinal points are italicized; due credit is given for the work of others, and accurate references to the literature are appended. There are many new illustrations in this edition, in addition to those used in former editions, and they are all printed on good paper, making them clear and useful.
