This book is a condensed manual of pathology, diagnosis and treatment of pulmonary tuberculosis, well adapted to the needs of the student, for whose benefit it was written. Despite its terseness, it is more than a compend. The author is evidently a close clinical observer, for he writes in a convincing style, marshaling his facts in good order. The reader may take exceptions to the chapter on pneumothorax, some statements in which might lead one to question the wideness of the author's experience with this means of treatment. Another might justly find fault with the paragraph on d'Espine's sign, which is certainly not in accordance with d'Espine's original description of the phenomenon. However, criticism is easy and no book is perfect. On the whole, the author is to be complimented on the clear and unequivocal character of his subject matter.
