This is the first number of a record designed for embodying the results of the collective investigation work now being prosecuted on a systematic plan in Great Britain, the prominent features of which were presented in our editorial columns of a recent number of this Journal. The present number of the Investigation Record, contains 190 pages, embracing a short history of the Collective Investigation movement, addresses by Sir W. Gull and Sir James Paget, a Report on the Communicability of Phthisis; preliminary Reports on Acute Pneumonia, on Chorea, Acute Rheumatism, and Diphtheria; communications on "A calculation of the probability of the accidental and fatal incidence of phthisis upon both husband and wife," and on "The collective investigation of disease," together with several other items of interest, to some of which we shall recur hereafter.
