Continuing study of the glands of internal secretion is sufficient reason for new editions of some of the classic volumes in this field. One of the best books for many years has been this by the professor of physiology in the Edinburgh University, which presents material from the scientific investigative aspects rather than from the empiric, clinical use of glandular extracts. The present volume is devoted largely to a consideration of work on the pituitary gland, with additional chapters on the pineal body, the pancreas and the sex glands. The literature has been combed thoroughly for material, but evidently the author has not been especially critical in his analysis of the things that he has read. As a work of reference to current literature, this volume may be especially recommended.
