Ninety pages are devoted to the study of the error in volumetric titration, and can be of interest only to an occasional professional analyst. The apparatus, principles and practice of microdiffusion analysis are discussed for 186 pages; these will be of interest to the biochemist, but the methods will probably not supplant those already in use in the clinical laboratories of this country.

An appendix of 15 pages discusses the measurement of renal function from the standpoint of a general diffusion-pressure equation derived from previously published data and a consideration of the formula for estimation of renal work. This section will interest the physiologist but not the clinician.
