The first chapter of this book is taken up by an introductory consideration of the principles underlying immunity processes in general. The preparation and practical application of the various antitoxic and antimicrobic serums are then concisely described. The section of the book dealing with the principles of vaccine therapy, and giving practical directions for preparation and use, is especially valuable. Hewlett's views concerning direct transfusion are somewhat at variance with the prevailing American ideas and the subject is therefore dismissed with but slight consideration. The references to important literature on the different subjects constitute a valuable portion of the book.
