The first volume of this book was published in 1936 and was reviewed favorably in the Archives of Internal Medicine (60:248 [Nov.] 1937)). The second volume also deserves much praise. It continues with a critical review of the history of research on the pituitary body from 1935 until 1938 and represents a sifting and classifying of all recent work on the physiology and pharmacology of this peculiar gland. The bibliography contains 1,418 titles, which the author states represent only 78 per cent of the articles which were considered.
Inevitably, the two volumes together will prove of great usefulness to all students, investigators and clinicians who have any interest in modern endocrinology.
