This handsome monograph, finely printed and well illustrated, covers the subject of blood groups and blood transfusion in a thoroughly satisfying way. There are definitive discussions of the history of the subject, of the practical aspects of blood typing and of the technic of transfusion. The scholarly chapters on the heredity of the blood group may be fairly heavy going for clinical readers but are invaluable for reference. The book is well documented throughout with references to the literature.
