This is the first number of the abstract journal, which is devoted to abstracts on nutrition and related subjects. The journal has as an introduction an editorial with three short papers on nutrition: "Nutrition and Human Welfare," by Sir Frederick Gowland Hopkins; "Some of the Difficulties in Quantitative Assignment of Human Diets," and "The Qualitative Aspects of Nutrition (with Special Reference to Farm Animals)."

In addition to the pages taken up by these discussions, there are nearly 250 pages of abstracts covering a wide variety of publication.
