This admirable compilation of physiologic procedures should interest alike the student and the experimenter. For each experiment the author indicates the materials and instruments required and the exact procedure to be followed, and gives useful bibliographic references together with a brief discussion of the principles involved. The three main divisions deal with experiments on the dog, rabbit and frog (with a few on the cat, pigeon, turtle and quail), and in each part the author takes up, besides the usual experimental procedures on circulation, respiration, digestion and metabolism, such subjects as the measurement of chronaxia, the methods of extirpation and of perfusion of organs (isolated and in situ), and the preparation of various fistulas. The book deserves a prominent place in the library of every physiologic or pharmacologic laboratory, and the author is to be congratulated on having produced a useful and usable manual.
