This extensive monograph is the joint work of nine authors, the greater part of the work, however, being contributed by Dr. Stepp and Breslau and Dr. György of Heidelberg. In the preface the editors remark that previous monographs on diseases resulting from vitamin deficiency have been written mainly by laboratory men and thus give primarily the points of view of the experimental physiologists and pathologists. The present volume is intended to supplement previous efforts in that the material is presented and discussed essentially by clinicians, and mainly on the basis of clinical material. Nevertheless, the first 200 pages of the book deals primarily with experimental avitaminosis. These 200 pages are contributed by Dr. Stepp of Breslau, who writes on the physiologic side, and Dr. Kihn of Erlangen, who discusses the pathologic anatomy of avitaminosis. The chapters by Dr. Stepp are on the whole excellent summaries. The same cannot be said
