As stated in the preface, this book was prepared especially for the use of medical students, laboratory technicians and general practitioners. The author has achieved his purpose in an eminently satisfactory manner. Although the volume has been kept to a small, convenient size, all the important variations in both normal and abnormal blood pictures are shown in the 32 color plates. Adding greatly to the usefulness of this type of atlas is a concise, systematic clinical discussion of the various blood diseases. Valuable chapters have been included on hematologic technics, the bone marrow, blood parasites, splenomegaly and splenectomy, the blood picture in various laboratory animals, hematologic definitions and, finally, a "summary of hematologic findings in various diseases and conditions."

This is an excellent practical atlas and concise summary of present day hematology by a recognized authority. It should prove of value to all those concerned with this subject.
