This book is the first portion of a more complete series to be published later. It is written to emphasize the relation of anatomic alteration to physiologic derangement, but does not consider questions of pure morphology or of differential diagnosis. The photographs are the actual valuable material in the book. It really is a series of articles on special pathology, beautifully illustrated with photographs of gross lesions and wash drawings, in colors, of microscopic appearances. The student of post-mortem diagnosis who masters the appearances of the lesions illustrated should not fail to recognize similar lesions in the subject. In the discussions in the text the author puts aside theory, omitting all problems which are still unsettled.
