This issue of this scientific medical serial is practically a monograph on acromegaly, one hundred and ninety-four of its two hundred and fifty pages being devoted to the subject. The principal article, that of Dr. Harlow Brooks, is noticed editorially in this issue of the Journal, and further mention of its contents can therefore be dispensed with here.

The other memoirs are, one a collateral subject, the distortion of the optic chasm in a case of acromegaly, by Dr. Ward Holden; one that might be considered in a sense collateral, on the normal dimensions of the pituitary fossa by Dr. Ales Herdlicka, and one, a preliminary psychologic study of a case of amnesia. The issue is a valuable one and maintains the standard set in this publication.
