The author is associate professor of urology at the University of Tokyo, and has utilized the opportunity afforded by the large number of urinary tract calculus cases in Japan to study 200 calculi from the standpoint of their crystalline and chemical composition. This has led him to study the still unsolved problem of the cause of calculus formation. To those interested in the question whether it is the biliary or urinary tract, this book is to be warmly recommended. The hundreds of colored illustrations of calculi and their interpretation in the most thorough manner conceivable enable one to visualize the vast amount of energy expended by the author in their preparation, over a period of six years. The book is of especial value to urologists because it takes up the crystallography and chemistry of all varieties of urinary calculi in a far more thorough manner than any previous contribution to
