In this impressively large and handsome volume, the author attempts a comprehensive visual presentation of the gross and microscopic features of neurological disease. The first of 10 sections comprising the main body of the book is a general description of the cytology and cellular pathology of the nervous system with 15 colored cuts illustrating as many straining methods and 37 black and white representations of typical pathological changes in neurons, nerve fibers, glia, and connective tissue. The remaining nine sections cover, in order, inflammatory, toxic and nutritional, demyelinating, vascular, traumatic, degenerative, neoplastic, and developmental disorders, with a final section on the sequelae of paranatal and postnatal pathological conditions. In his preface, the author states that "equal space has been given to all categories, but special attention has been paid to neglected conditions such as the heredodegenerative disorders and those pertaining to geriatrics, cerebral palsy and mental deficiency."
