This work gives in compact and readable form the principal facts of clinical diagnosis. It is not a complete substitute for the larger works, but it will have its uses. It is handsomely illustrated, well written and in the main complete. There are some omissions, however; for instance, in the part on the nervous system, no mention is made of the Kernig sign which, whatever its value, can hardly be neglected by the diagnostician of the present day. There is much that necessarily must be stated briefly, perhaps a little too briefly in a work of this kind.
