Bing's compendium has long been known as the best small book on the subject. It has deservedly grown into the sixth edition. The fifth edition appeared in 1923, and because of the fact that there have been so few advances in the knowledge of the nervous system, the sixth, the present edition, differs from the fifth only in that there has been a thorough revision of the illustrations, new diagrams having been added, and here and there are some minor changes in the text. With the revisions that have been made, this book can be recommended to students and neurologists as the best small book on organic nervous diseases published.
