Von Fürth's original work, published as a series of lectures in Germany three or four years ago, was at once recognized as a masterly survey of the many puzzling problems in the difficult but fascinating field of biochemistry. The judicial, logical, clear cut reasoning, and especially the lucid and stimulating presentation, stamped the work as a model of its kind and one which was certain to have a powerful influence in the development and broadening of interest in physiologic and pathologic chemistry. The translator and the publisher have done a distinct service for medicine in making this valuable work available to a great number of readers who otherwise would not have become acquainted with it. Von Fürth's "Probleme" may be looked on as an extension and revision to date of the field covered in von Noorden's work on metabolism, the translation of which noticeably stimulated American medicine.
