It is an unusual thing for a person to record and illustrate his dreams, yet this is what Dr. Stiles has done. The author has been collecting his dreams for a period of thirty years and is still recording them. He evidently derives pleasure from it. During the last ten years he has been making sketches of them. Some of these illustrations were made many years after the date of the dreams.

The discussion is divided into the sensory content, bodily states, memories and anticipations, the emotional content and the personality of the dreams. The author does not claim to be a psychologist. Nevertheless, he has definite ideas as to the psychology of his own dreams. It is always a hazardous thing for a person to interpret his own dreams and it is questionable whether one can do so—it is, however, an interesting record. Particularly entertaining are the sketches.
