This contains the most complete report of the cases during the late Bubonic epidemic at Bombay that has appeared. Fifty-four autopsies were made of the cases, 47 by the members of the Austrian Plague Commission and the remainder by the hospital staff. Nearly one-half of the bound volume is occupied by clinical charts.

We referred to this in our editorial on p. 29 of the current volume.
