This little book presents only the essential and clinically valuable methods of blood examination. The three cardinal features of hematology, namely, staining, counting of cells and estimation of hemoglobin, are especially emphasized, while the chemical and physical methods are ignored. The methods selected are those proved reliable by Pappenheim in his extensive work and are, therefore, of more than passing interest. Thus, his method of staining is a modification of the combined May-Grünwald and Giemsa stain, which gives very panoptic results. Sahli's method of estimating hemoglobin is preferred.
