The second volume of the revision of Lewandowsky's Handbuch der Neurologie, the original of which appeared before the World War, consists of four separate volumes. While this edition is under the supervision of Professors O. Bumke and O. Foerster, all of four parts have been written by Professor Foerster. They comprise 1,148 pages with 570 illustrations, many of them in color. All the illustrations are excellent, and the color work is particularly fine.
The first part of the second volume deals with the special anatomy and physiology of the peripheral nerves; the second with the symptomatology of gunshot wounds of the peripheral nerves; the third with the therapy of gunshot injuries of the peripheral nerves, and the last with traumatic lesions of the spinal cord based on experiences gained in the World War.
The original Handbuch was unquestionably the best exposition of the German point of view regarding organic neurology
