The subtitle, "Exercises in the Diagnosis of Diseases of the Nervous System," indicates the function of this volume; it consists of a collection of forty-one reports made by the staff of the first division of the New York Neurological Institute. With few exceptions each of the reports is of a single case, and in length they vary from two to twenty-eight pages. Most of the cases are organic, but there is an excellent report (by Naccarati) on obsessions and fixed ideas; one on a case of paramyoclonus multiplex, and three on dementia praecox. The organic cases present a wide diversity, and every one is interesting and instructive. Vascular lesions, syphilis and tumors receive considerable attention, while of the more unusual things may be instanced progressive hemiplegia, astereognosis without hemiplegia, partial blindness from disease of the accessory nasal sinuses, symptomatic tic douloureux, disseminated lesions of the spinal cord due to malaria,
