This is the second of a three volume work on the pathogenesis, diagnosis and treatment of the diseases of internal medicine. The first volume of the trilogy was recently reviewed in the Archives; the last volume is still to come. The author, Dr. Ludolf Krehl, for twenty-six years professor and head of the Medical Clinic of Heidelberg, is one of the great figures in German medicine. The present volume deals with diagnosis; it is excellent reading for the initiated, but cannot be recommended as a textbook; in fact, it cannot be intended for the beginner. Rather is it a charming essay, a fireside chatting, what a practitioner might expect to hear were he to enjoy an intimate visit with the master clinician, a confiding of the secrets of the trade and an exposition of those methods of procedure found effective.
