This book is so well known and has become so popular since it was first issued in 1900 that it is not necessary to discuss it in detail. In this edition it has been thoroughly revised and 67 pages have been added to it since it first appeared. One new chapter appears in this edition entitled "Some Dietetic 'Cures' and 'Systems.'" In it the nature and usefulness of a vegetarian and lacto-vegetarian diet, a purinfree diet, Dr. Hare's system, which is a proteid diet chiefly, an exclusive proteid diet, a salt-free diet and sour-milk diet are considered briefly but judiciously. Most of the additions to the volume are to the chapters and sections devoted to diet in diseases. Dr. Hutchison's book is certainly one of the best of the many which have been published during the last dozen years.
