The last twenty-nine pages of this section of the larger work contains a chapter on the influence of the endocrines on human growth and body form by Dr. H. Rautmann in Brunswick. This chapter deals in an elementary way with the influence of the anterior hypophysis, the thyroids and the gonads in body growth in man. The majority of this chapter has already been presented in the sections on these specific endocrine glands. But by far the most important part of this volume is the chapter on senescence and rejuvenation, by Dr. B. Romeis in Munich. This chapter makes a monograph of 250 pages with 47 illustrations and reviews in critical detail the experimental and clinical data of the various attempts at general body and sex function rejuvenation in old animals and old persons. The presentation is logical, lucid and objective. The analysis appears everywhere to be fair. The author
