The practical importance of the subject of immunity, in both the prophylaxis and the treatment of disease, is calling forth a number of excellent works on the subject. The present book must be reckoned among the best of those that have appeared for the use of the physician. The study of the subject is both thorough and practical. The method of vaccine therapy is discussed and in many cases the evidence for the value of this method of treatment is given at some length. The book, however, does not quite take the place of a comprehensive work on vaccine therapy. In addition to the discussion of the subject of anaphylaxis, supplementary chapters are given on Abderhalden's work on protective ferments and on colloids. The statement of facts in general is concise and clear. The book is well illustrated with drawings, several of which are colored.
