The first edition of this well known British textbook of medicine appeared in 1929. The editor has encountered more than the customary difficulties of compilation because of the wide separation of the contributors because of the war and the rapid progress of development along some lines. The sections on tropical diseases and vitamin deficiency diseases have been entirely rewritten. Other sections have been revised more or less extensively. By a great effort the size of the book has been immaterially changed. This has been facilitated by avoiding almost all references to men or publications. Textbooks such as this are still in wide use by medical students and physicians.
