The fifth volume of reprints from the Neurologic Clinic of the Salpêtrière, under the leadership of Professor Guillain, contains forty-four papers. As in its predecessors, the papers are divided into groups: (1) cerebral tumors; (2) the pathologic changes in encephalitis; (3) diseases of the brain stem and cerebellum; (4) the spinal cord; (5) the cranial nerves and rachitides, and (6) various syndromes. Lastly, there is an appreciation of Charles Foix. This is the usual classification adopted in the previous volumes, with minor changes here and there. With the exception of the advances that have been made, particularly in neuropathology, the work varies little. On the whole, it is a credit to the French literature and to the Salpêtrière, which was made famous by the work of Charcot and Pierre Marie.
