This is an excellent critical summary of the present status of the vitamin problem. The author is catholic in his familiarity with the literature in all languages. The bibliography, however, is incomplete. There are some good photographic illustrations of typical vitamin deficiencies in man and in animals. In the preface to the volume, the physiologist Richet of the University of Paris states that the present volume is really complementary to the volume on the vitamins published by Dr. Berg in Germany three years ago. Dr. Berg in his monograph dealt particularly with the relation of the vitamins to mineral metabolism. Lorenzini's volume deals also with this problem but, in addition, sums up briefly our present knowledge concerning the rôle of the vitamins in all phases of nutrition and metabolism. The volume is a useful and valuable contribution to medicine.
