This book fills a much felt need. It brings the subject up to date and includes many methods hitherto only to be found in journals. There are ten chapters: 1. General Procedure; 2. Methods for Cells; 3. Methods for Myelin Sheaths; 4. Methods for Neurofibrils; 5. Methods for Neuroglia; 6. Methods for Microglia and Oligodendroglia; 7. Methods for Connective Tissues; 8. Methods for Products of Degeneration; 9. Methods for Peripheral Nerves; 10. Methods for Bacterial Invasion of the Nervous System.

There is an excellent index not only of the names of those whose methods are given, but also of the histologic and histopathologic elements the demonstration of which forms the subject of the book, such as plaques séniles, syncytium schwannique, microglia. There is an adequate bibliography. The book merits translation into English.
