[From W. T. Keener, Agt., 95 Washington St., Chicago.]

A modern manual of physiology intended for the systematic study and as a guide for the laboratory.

The work is a thorough-going one, well illustrated, and modern in its method. We no longer have those smoothly flowing treatises on physiology that made the earlier works so popular; on the contrary, the modern physiology has come to be a mathematico-chemic statement concerning the functions of the body based on careful observation and accurate knowledge. While thus the romantic has disappeared, in its place has come science and the power that grows from it, and there is still enough of the marvelous in the study of the actual processes of nature to keep up a strong interest.
