The first edition of this book appeared in 1933. The Journal of the American Medical Association (101:1262 [Oct. 14] 1933) reviewed it favorably, saying that it was to be heartily recommended as an authoritative introduction to the subject.

The second edition is modeled on the first but carries forward the knowledge of the central nervous system a new ten years. It continues to discuss the pathology of the nervous system from a broad biologic standpoint, and by necessity is largely a text of histopathology. The first edition was printed by Lea & Febiger. The printers of the second edition use type that is somewhat different; the format, illustrations and tables are good. On the whole, the second edition deserves the same comment that was given to the first: It can be heartily recommended as an authoritative introduction to its subject.
