This little book, which is in size suitable to the pocket, was written, according to the author, for the general practitioner who has not had the opportunity furnished the rising generation to familiarize himself with the modern laboratory technic. As a result the work is quite elementary, and deals more with what the practitioner can and ought to do rather than with the details of how to do it. As a work of this class it does very well, but as it is not technical, it can scarcely be criticised along this line.
