Textbooks of medicine increase in size continuously with the advancement of medical knowledge. Thus the present edition of Cecil's Textbook is 130 pages larger than the preceding edition. It appears with a green cover, whereas the previous edition was in blue. The book has been entirely revised and completely reset. One hundred and thirty-one additional illustrations are provided. Unfortunately, the paper used for a volume of this size makes reproduction of half-tone illustrations somewhat difficult, and the reproductions, particularly of x-ray films and of skin conditions, are not of the best. In the present edition there are new articles on equine encephalomyelitis, moniliasis, toxoplasmosis, disseminated lupus erythematosus, chronic bromide poisoning, riboflavin deficiency, uveoparotid fever, regional ileitis, amaurotic family idiocy and gargoylism. There are also new treatises on some of the topics previously covered as the result of the development of new information or the appearance of new research. Dr. Foster
