We can not better set forth the aims and purposes of this laboratory guide than the author has done in his preface:
"An attempt has been made to give concise directions for preparing the most important substances that enter into the composition of the fluids and tissues of the animal body. The methods herein presented are compiled from the most recent and important works on physiological chemistry; and in certain instances two or three procedures are given for obtaining the same result. The two hundred or more tests are arranged in alphabetical order; and the name of the scientist who suggested the test, or the name under which it is ordinarily known, is given in each case."
The work has been carefully and conscientiously done and the book will be found very useful by those engaging in laboratory work.
