The printing of this book in Great Britain amid the disruption caused by a world war shows definitely that the British set a high and proper value on the maintenance of facilities for publishing an important scientific work not directly related to the war effort. The book is a painstaking analysis of the biochemistry of the morphogenic hormones in a search for a physicochemical causal basis for morphogenesis. As such it comes as a suitable supplement to the author's earlier three volume Chemical Embryology, in which the discussion was limited largely to the consideration of paracrystalline aggregates, colloidal miscelles, fibrous macromolecules and protein structure and the study of the chemical changes which go on in embryonic development.

Of the three parts into which the present book is divided, part I is devoted to the morphogenic substratum, including under this head such topics as the constitution of the egg of invertebrates
