The second edition of this work conforms to the excellent standard set by the previous edition. An entire section has been added on vitamin K, and new chapters on hemolytic anemias and hemoglobinuria. Other sections that have been amplified are those on blood transfusion, blood banks and blood plasma. New material has been given on the action of drugs on the blood and fractionation of liver extracts and the porphyrin compounds. Omissions of certain phases of osteosclerotic anemia, achrestic anemia, ovalocystosis, Hodgkin's disease and histoplasmosis have been corrected.

With the addition of new color plates and illustrations, an excellent description of the diseases of the blood is contained in this one volume.
