This volume is devoted, as its name implies, entirely to infectious diseases, viz.: Scarlet fever, measles, German measles, chickenpox, glandular fever, whooping-cough, cholera infantum, cholera nostras, Asiatic cholera, dengue, beri-beri, miliary fever and Malta fever.

The contributors to this volume are: Dillon Brown, M.D.; David Bruce, M.B., C.M.; Sir Joseph Fayrer, Bart., M.D., LL.D., F.R.S., F.R.C.P., R.C.S.; Frederick Forchheimer, M.D.; A. Jacobi, M.D.; A. Metter, M.D.; Nathaniel Read Norton, M.D.; Joseph O'Dwyer, M.D.; Theodor Rumpf, M.D.; A. A. De Azevedo Sodre, M.D.; Dawson Williams, M.D., F.R.C.P.

The high character of the contributors prepares us for the excellent quality of the work and one is not disappointed at the result.

This volume is a fitting companion of its predecessors in this magnificent series and one to which the reader may turn for complete information on this important class of diseases.
