The proceedings of the Charaka Club now command a premium. No doubt this will apply equally to volume VII because it is issued in a limited publication and because it includes material that is certain to attract numerous readers. The Charaka Club includes thirty-four leaders of medicine, almost all residing in the eastern part of the United States, apparently men who are interested not only in medicine itself but in the esthetics of medicine, in its history and in similar subjects. The essays read before the club are here collected in book form. They include material in the field of architecture and art. They include fictional sketches, poems, historical items and humor. The authors in the volume include such notable medical writers as Frederick Peterson, Joseph Collins, Edward L. Keyes, C. N. B. Camac and George D. Stewart.
