This exhaustive bibliography of infantile paralysis is arranged according to years, beginning in the year 1789 and running up to the present time. The abstracts are numbered and consist of a total of 8,320. In addition to the abstracts there are an author's index and a subject index.

This is the most comprehensive consideration of the sort that the reviewer has ever seen. It must be as complete as is humanly possible to make it. It should be a model for any further publication of a like nature on any other disease. That it should prove extremely useful not only as a standard but from the practical side of medicine goes without saying. It is a most valuable book of a unique type.
