This monograph on the blood platelets contains a comprehensive discussion of the anatomy, physiology and pathology of these, the least studied of all the blood elements. The author has been associated for some years with Achard in an active investigation of these structures, and includes his own observations with an ample background of the previous work of others, American investigators, we are pleased to notice, receiving recognition. J. H. Wright's important observations would probably receive more consideration by Aynaud if the latter had seen Wright's preparations instead of mere inadequate photographic reproductions. The broad and liberal discussion of the topic assures this monograph a stable place in the literature of a baffling subject, while the simplicity and clarity of the text is refreshing to one who has often had to beat his way through the average German monograph of similar nature and scope.
