This volume maintains the high standard long ago established for these publications. The contents are divided into six sections: "Public Health and Hygiene," six papers; "Diagnosis and Treatment," seven lectures or papers; "Medicine," four papers; "Pediatrics," one paper; "Surgery," one paper; "Obstetrics," one paper.
Of direct interest to neurologists are a lecture on tic by Morris Grossman, a paper on the parkinsonian syndrome by Alfred Gordon and a paper by Van Leeuwen of Leiden on recent advances in the treatment of bronchial asthma, hay-fever, urticaria, eczema, Quincke's edema, migraine and epilepsy.

Many of the other papers are interesting and instructive. This volume, like its predecessors, is of value to
