From "gonorrhoea" to "hydrotherapy" is the field covered by the sixth volume of this encyclopedia, the leading titles including some fifteen pages on gout, seventy-five pages on topics beginning with "hema," twenty-seven pages on the hand and 150 pages on the heart. Other important headings concern heat, heredity and hernia. The authors of note in this volume are Colonel Harrison, who writes on gonorrhea on the basis of a large experience during the Great War and since, and many leading British physicians whose names are associated with diseases of the blood. Whitfield discusses the hair and Reginald Miller in a succinct statement gives the important facts regarding rheumatic heart disease in children. The name of C. P. Symonds is associated with articles on headache and on hydrocephalus. The volume is fully up to the standard of the previous volumes in typography, illustration and the quality of the material.
