This volume is by Prof. F. Georgi and Prof. O. Fischer. The first part is concerned with a general consideration of the blood, urine and spinal fluid. The latter part deals with changes in the spinal fluid in various nervous diseases.

The general section dealing with the blood and urine covers thoroughly the work on these body fluids from the chemical, physical, colloid and immunologic standpoints. It is an exhaustive review which deals with the chemistry of these substances very completely. The spinal fluid is also covered exhaustively. There is an excellent general discussion of the cells, specific gravity, viscosity and other physical characteristics, the inorganic and organic chemical constituents and the biochemistry and immunology. Some idea of the completeness of the review is gained from the fact that 300 pages are devoted to a general discussion of the blood, urine and spinal fluid, 100 of which are taken up
