This work of about 700 pages appears in the form of two rather small volumes. It deals with the autopsy findings in death from any cause which may have a legal or forensic bearing and these findings are not only clearly described, but excellently illustrated in black and white and in colors. In addition to this methods of identification of both the living and the dead are described, together with the German laws governing the making of autopsies for medicolegal purposes and the giving of expert testimony and of certificates or opinions by medical men. The work contains much that is of value to physicians in general as well as to those who are especially engaged in medicolegal work.
