This work will be welcomed by those interested in poliomyelitis, especially in its epidemic manifestations. It contains, in addition to the author's own well-known researches, during the epidemic of 1909 in Marburg, into the transmission of the disease to monkeys, studies in immunity, etc., a complete exposition of the whole subject from a historical, clinical, pathologic, pathogenic and therapeutic point, up to the very latest work of Flexner and Clark in this country. It deals as fully with the future, the great unsolved problems, as with that which is known. The illustrations showing monkeys to which the disease has been transmitted, and also the histology of the disease, are excellent. At this time when laymen are as interested as physicians in this mysterious disease that has seemed, at least, to have taken on new characteristics in the last decade, this little volume should find a welcome place.
