This monograph presents much accurate information scientifically gathered which should be interesting and informative to the pediatrician as well as to the research investigator. The many authoritative abstracts on the relation of diet, disease and various physical abnormalities to stature makes a valuable treatise. The extensive bibliography should be very useful to any one undertaking such studies in the future on the differences and the effects of illness and dietary treatment. Part II is an annotated bibliography of all studies published in North America to 1942 and gives data on stature during the first two years of life. It represents much more work than its size first suggests and would make a valuable reference work for any one interested in infant development.
