The scope of the work can be seen readily from the following headings of chapters: " Microscope;" "On Preparing Tissues for Examination;" "On Section Cutting;" "On Staining;" "On Double Staining;" "On Mounting;" "On Injecting the Vascular System;" "Method of Obtaining Animal Tissues for Examination; " "On Preparing and Mounting Pathological Specimens;" "On Bacteria;" "On Staining Bacteria." The first chapters deal with microscopical technique and are very good, though we cannot commend them as highly as the little book of Friedlander, which was noticed in these pages a few weeks ago. More formulæ for staining fluids are given in this than in the latter work, but the directions for manipulating specimens are not so detailed and explicit. The chapter pertaining to pathological tissues is short and least satisfactory. The chapter on the staining of bacteria is devoted almost exclusively to the staining of tubercle bacilli.
