In view of the eminence of the author, it is not surprising that this book is well written and carefully thought out. It consists of the various experiences with 701 cases in the Royal Hospital for Sick Children in Glasgow.

The subject is taken up from the practical standpoint and shows a vast amount of work with an unusually complete study. Not only is this true, but the deductions are conservative and useful. American readers will be especially interested, I think, in the chapter on "Rheumatic Nodules," but the whole book is a fund of information that is hard to obtain except by going through much of the literature. Incidentally, Findlay has consulted authorities on many of the subjects and has brought out all phases of any moot questions.

The book is well printed and brings a definite and valuable addition to the knowledge of the subject.
