The great increase in the occurrence of cancer of the lung in the last few years has offered a large material for clinical and pathologic study. This volume emphasizes especially the clinical side and in addition to carcinoma includes sarcoma and a short section on Hodgkin's disease of the lung. It furnishes an excellent survey of the subject from this special aspect. There are some well reproduced colored plates showing the gross aspects of interesting types of lung tumors, and photomicrographs of the various forms of carcinoma of the lung. What is most interesting is a large series of roentgenograms of the lung lesions, which are well reproduced. There is a complete bibliography, which is on the whole accurate as far as has been verified, though the proofreading of names and some foreign words could be improved. For those who are familiar with Spanish this is a useful treatise.
