The present volume maintains the high standard of previous years and is as good a summary of the year's output of neuropsychiatric literature as could be arranged in a volume of this size. The entire field is covered, with special attention to some subjects. For instance, there are twenty-nine pages on the various phases of lethargic encephalitis and several pages on related conditions. Seventeen pages are devoted to neurosyphilis.
Among the interesting things discussed, we may mention brain changes in poisoning by illuminating gas, colloid and calcareous degeneration of cerebral vessels, the parkinsonian syndromes, an excellent report on myelomalacia, injection of air into the spinal canal for diagnostic purposes and nervous symptoms due to vertebral anomalies.
There are sixty pages of excellent matter on mental diseases. We believe nothing of importance has escaped the eye of the editor. The illustrations are good and the index adequate.
