In a delightful foreword, Dr. Fielding H. Garrison speaks of the device of lecturing as a dubious one in any subject, but adds with truth that the lectures under review are "fresh, informing, brief and to the point." Dr. Seelig has done a useful piece of work in preparing an outline of medical history, which no doubt was followed with enthusiasm by his hearers. It is fortunate that the lectures have appeared in book form and can be read in a few hours and referred to at will.

Dr. Seelig's book is an outline, but it also is a sound guide to the beginner in medical study or to the intelligent layman who wishes to gain a rapid view of the subject. The informed, even the specialist in medical history, can read it with pleasure and profit, if only to get the author's method and point of view.
