This book appears to cover in a satisfactory manner the field it occupies. Perhaps more space, relatively speaking, than usual has been devoted to special organ systems, especially the nervous system. The illustrations are in general creditable. Figures 165 and 361 should be replaced by other and better ones in the next edition. There is a very limited chapter on technic which might as well have been omitted in view of the various authoritative books on histologic technic now obtainable and copies of some of which surely are present in every well-equipped laboratory. It is somewhat startling to read in the preface that the field of normal histology is inadequately covered as regards text-books. This becomes still more puzzling when we find that in his list of references the author cites nearly a dozen works that have been issued since 1900 and several of which are recognized as standard text-books.
