The book is divided into nineteen chapters; the first nine deal with general pathology, the last nine with special pathologic anatomy, and Chapter 10 takes up diseases of the endocrine organs and abnormalities of internal secretion. The student is offered an enormous amount of detailed information in highly condensed form. Here and there are statements that should be eliminated because not of enough value to occupy the space, as, for instance, this from page 435: "In one remarkable case recorded by Paget an apparently pure cartilaginous tumor [of the testicle] gave rise to secondary cartilaginous growths in the vena cava and lungs, and was described as a 'malignant enchondroma.' It was reexamined by Kanthack and Pigg forty years later , and found to be in reality a carcinoma." In view of the large field the book covers, the accuracy with which it reflects the present knowledge of pathology is noteworthy.
