Dr. Dixon in this edition has assembled expertly and with authority the pertinent literature on manometric methods in the form of a handbook. Since these technics are now being widely used in biologic research and are being applied to an ever increasing variety of problems, this not too technical account is a distinct service not only to beginners who desire knowledge of the principles involved and errors to be guarded against but also to more advanced workers. Part I deals with the types of manometers. The theory, which can be followed by any one with a knowdge of the gas laws, is given in detail for the constant volume and differential types. Methods of calibration and other practical details are described. Part II gives in detail the methods for measuring respiration, including the direct method, the first method of Dickens and Simer, the indirect method of Warburg, the second method
