The nature of this book is sufficiently indicated by the title. It contains 496 pages, and there are some fifty-seven different articles by about the same number of contributors, the majority of whom are Americans; but Germany, England, France, Norway, Hungary, Russia, Brazil, are represented. The majority of the foreign contributors are Germans. Many of the articles are illustrated; the majority deal with various phases of the medical and surgical diseases of childhood; but not a few are devoted to other subjects. The list of contributors contains many names of prominence. An excellent etching of the recipient of this great honor forms a fitting frontispiece. The preface is a well-written sketch of the manifold, scientific and public-spirited activities of Dr. Jacobi. His brilliant attainments and strong personality certainly warrant this appropriate testimonial in his honor. His services in promoting the study of diseases of children have been of inestimable value
