This volume covers some topics which have not been provided for in the preceding volumes and scarcely provided for in the nomenclature. "General diseases of obscure causation," is the rather unscientific title of one of the chapters, under which head is included discussion on acute rheumatism, chronic muscular rheumatism, rheumatoid arthritis, rickets, acromegaly, hypertrophic pulmonary osteo-arthropathy, gout, diabetes mellitus, diabetes insipidus, lardaceous diseases, diseases of alimentation and secretion, including general pathology of digestion and secretion, shock and collapse; diseases of the mouth and esophagus, diseases of the stomach, diaphragmatic hernia, abdominal diagnosis from the gynecologic standpoint, enteroptosis, diseases of the peritoneum, diseases of the bowels. There are twenty-three illustrations, a plate and various charts and bibliographic references. The volume is quite up to date in its discussions on the treatment recommended. Drs. Church, Cheadle, Archibald Garrod, Kent Spender, Still, Ralfe, Mr. Bowlby, Sir William Roberts, Drs. Saundby, W. L. Dickinson,
