The University of Chicago Press has sent out this volume, which ought to be a very useful one for consultation by asylum, hospital and other physicians who have the opportunity to make anatomic preparations of the nervous system. The recognized methods are described both for the preparation of sections and of dry and wet specimens for museum purposes, with also directions for dissection and postmortem work. We do not know any other book of its size that seems quite as complete and useful as the present one, and none, of course, that ought to be more up to date. The anatomic nomenclature of the Basel commission is given in the concluding chapter as far as it covers the nervous system, and is a very useful feature.
