This book embodies Paulian's experience with forty-six diverse tumors of the brain, studied during the last ten years. Cushing's classification and arrangement of material are closely followed and, indeed, a number of illustrations are taken from this author's work. The histologic features and various types of glioma are concisely and clearly described. Paulian's method of encephalography is given in full, but does not embody any original features. Histories of cases are given in considerable detail, with photographs of gross and microscopic material. These also do not bring to light any striking, new conceptions. The illustrations are poorly reproduced, although they are evidently taken from excellent specimens. The book, as a whole, is scarcely in the same class with that of Bailey, Cushing or Sachs on this subject.
