Volume VIII of the Encyclopaedia of Medical Practice proceeds from "leukaemia" to "mucous colic." It is interesting that these two terms should differ so greatly from the American spelling and usage of the same terms. En route from "leukemia" to "mucous colic" are such interesting main headings as the "lipoidoses," "liver diseases," "lung diseases," "the lymphatic glands," "malingering," "massage," "meningitis," "mental diseases," "metabolism," "mouth diseases" and "motor neuron diseases." The cooperating writers are among the leaders of British medicine and the writing throughout shows the effects of fine editorial attention. Volume VIII is fully up to the standard of the excellent volumes which have preceded it.
