This little work has certain decided merits. Although a compilation it is rather unique in its plan, and can hardly be well compared with any other work of its scope and kind on the subject. It is not a monographic account of the disease, as its title might imply, but rather a critical scientific résumé of the various methods of treatment and the theories on which they are based. The specialist in nervous disorders, or any one with much practice among epileptics, will find the little volume a convenient résumé of facts, judiciously stated. Its up-to-date character may be estimated by the fact that the author reproduces in full as an appendix Ceni's article on blood toxicity and serum therapy in epilepsy, read before the Italian Congress di Frenatria in October, and which has just been awarded the Craig Colony prize.
