The first article in this volume, by Max Lange, is on diseases of the vertebrae. It is comprehensive, well presented and clearly illustrated. It contains a good account of the various forms of spondylitis. There is an adequate discussion of tumors of the vertebrae and spinal meninges by Nils Antoni. Werner Schulze contributes an excellent discussion of diseases of the skull. There is a good article on the intracranial complications of sinus disease by Oskar Hirsch and a clear presentation of otogenous intracranial complications by Hans Brunner. Pachymeningitis and leptomeningitis are well reviewed by H. Pette, who includes not only the most commonly known forms but many rare forms of meningitis as well. The volume ends with a brief discussion of subarachnoid hemorrhage by L. Ehrenberg.
