This is a concise, well written and well edited book, containing the essential features of the diseases involving red and white blood cells and platelets. A short section on technical methods, followed by a systematic short description of the disease entities, is included. A résumé follows each section, including clinical symptoms, blood and marrow picture and treatment. The colored plates are satisfactory, comprehensive and serviceable. The book has a remarkable amount of material in condensed form. A bibliography is not given. The compilation should serve as a handy work for quick reference in differential diagnosis of "diseases of the blood." This is its primary purpose.
