The revision of this edition seems to be a thorough one, and a number of new methods of practical value have been introduced. The methods of obtaining the opsonic index, however, are not given. The Wassermann technic is described, but not a word is said about the tuberculin reaction, which one would expect would be described in a book that claims to give directions for clinical diagnosis by laboratory methods. No reference is made to blastomycosis or oidiomycosis; an illustration or two of the characteristic organisms would be helpful, and the same is true of sporotrichosis. One is also surprised that no mention is made of the appearance of pneumococcal and streptococcal colonies on blood-agar. In the next edition the references should be given according to some uniform method and standard abbreviations should be used.
