This volume is well up to the standard of the previous books in this system. The subjects discussed go from scarlet fever through such other main topics as sciatica, scurvy, sex hormones, sexual behavior and abnormalities, skin diseases, spinal cord diseases, spleen diseases, statistics, sterility, syphilis, and the testis. The authors are all British physicians of considerable note as investigators and practitioners in the fields of which they write. The volume is handsomely printed, profusely illustrated and well indexed.
