New York.

This book is made up of 271 pages. It consists of a series of case reports with the discussion chiefly concerned in the diagnosis and differential diagnosis. The cases recorded are for the most part of cerebral or spinal origin and are derived from the first division of the Neurological Institute. Collins is aided in his work by the various members of his staff.

The cases reported are practically all of organic nature. They are well presented, and the discussion which is incident to each case is very often illuminating.

The reviewer was made "tres triste" by a remark on the first page made by the editor. Collins states very naively that the diagnosis of the brain is largely a matter of guesswork. Then he proceeds to diagnose his case very skilfully and with an acumen that belies the foregoing remark.
