This volume is attractive and neat in appearance. The material is well arranged and classified and the various subdivisions are marked in full-faced type, rendering it easy to find what one is seeking. The index is well arranged and comprehensive, which is a most important feature of a text-book. Probably the most instructive chapter for the student is that on "Method of Diagnosis." Each method of physical diagnosis is gone into thoroughly and cause and effect are dealt with in detail. The chapters on the various endocardial lesions are concisely written, but that on mitral incompetence is amplified so that its study will give one a working basis of knowledge for the other endocardial affections. Altogether the book is well written and is worthy of a place on the table of both the student and practitioner.
