Twenty-two articles by eight members of the hospital staff on a "collection of selected clinical observations with interpretative comments" representing "an effort to activate fragments of experience" comprise the volume. Each case is clearly presented and has been thoroughly studied. Most commendable is the scientific curiosity evidenced in the "interpretative comments."

With the literature so crowded and with such easy access to standard medical publications, one questions the advisability of publishing such a collection, apparently the first of a series of which this is volume 1. The book is printed on good paper and is well bound, and the illustrations are excellent.
