Abstract

This book is primarily for the biochemist who wishes for a survey of the best methods for the preparation of hormones. It is not exhaustive in its treatment, but rather gives a few of the most successful methods of preparation. The reader becomes acqainted with the present state of the chemistry of hormones without the confusion which may follow when the subject is presented in detail.

Some historical material is included. The physiologic properties of the hormones are touched on briefly. There is little discussion of clinical material, and only the most significant papers are included in the bibliography.

The work is primarily a reference book. The type is large, well arranged and very readable.
