This volume, which forms the report on the idiot, epileptic and feeble-minded departments of the Bicètre under Bourneville, is, like its predecessors, a valuable contribution. The papers it contains are of unequal length, but all of them of more or less special interest. Among them may be mentioned the account of a family cerebrospinal disease by Bourneville and Crouzon, consanguinity in the etiology of epilepsy and alcoholism in the production of these diseases by Bourneville, statistics of the persistence of thymus, the data on the skull in idiocy, microcephalism, etc. This series of works will be of permanent value as containing valuable data in regard to defective humanity.
