In writing this new text-book Professor Long's aim has been "to present a brief account of the important principles of physiologic chemistry in a form suitable for the use of medical students who may be assumed to have completed courses in general inorganic and organic chemistry." The ground is fully covered in four sections devoted to the chemistry of the nutritives, of ferments and digestive processes, of the blood, the tissues and secretions of the body, and of the end products of metabolism, excretions, and the energy balance. Besides the descriptive matter, explicit instructions are given for an abundance of well-chosen laboratory experiments from which a selection can readily be made so that the book may serve as a laboratory manual as well as a text-book. Himself an investigator and a contributor of many new results to the science of physiologic chemistry, it is not surprising to find that Professor
