Volume II of this series has thirteen chapters in English and three in German. The various subjects are covered by independent contributors on miscellaneous subjects in the field of allergy. The three chapters in German consist of the introduction by the editor, Dr. Paul Kallos of Sweden, the chapter on "Pharmacology of the Antihistamines" (R. Meier and K. Bucher of Switzerland) and that on "Clinical Application of Histamine Antagonists" (Paul Kallos and Liselotte Kallos-Deffner of Sweden). These three chapters cover their subjects adequately.

Koch (Sweden); Allergy to Human Dander in Infantile Eczema, by F. Simon,
