The theory and selected methods of absorption spectrophotometry and their application to studies of whole blood, serum, urine, bile, ascitic fluid and cerebrospinal fluid are discussed in this volume, which presents an excellent survey of work in this field up to 1932. The book is well illustrated with charts and tables detailing quantitative aspects of the absorption spectrums of many naturally occurring pigments in normal and in pathologic conditions. Of particular interest are descriptions of the König-Martens spectrophotometer and the Zeiss Pulfrich step photometer and the discussions of supplementary photographic procedures for spectrophotometry and the earlier photoelectric spectrophotometric methods of Suhrmann and Kollath and of Warburg and Negelein. In the eleven years since the publication of the original volume, from which this book is a translation, practical quantitative absorption spectrophotometry has become an increasingly important research tool. Many advances have been made possible by the introduction, improvement and increased production
