This is the second edition of a book which contains short reviews of the works of various pediatricians down the ages. It is instructive, especially in the first few chapters, which deal with other than contemporaries. Not every one will agree with the choice of men or the distribution of emphasis, since this, of course, is a matter of the personal equation. On the whole, the book is one which claims interest and deserves commendation.
