The first edition of this book appeared in 1932. For some reason it was not much noticed by the ordinary clinician, though it was reviewed favorably by such special journals in the field of neurology as the Archives of Neurology and Psychiatry (27:1513 (June) 1932) and the Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease (76:94 (July) 1932).

Now that internists wish to have at least a bowing acquaintance with the central nervous system this recent edition is a godsend, for it is as simple a book on so complicated a subject as there can be, pretending to be no more than a finely reproduced graphic presentation of the chief nervous pathways.

The second edition is the same size as the first, but the author has made such alterations in text and illustrations as to bring out changes which have become reasonably well established as new knowledge in the past
