In his work on leprosy, Klingmüller, as is usual in these volumes, has covered every imaginable aspect of the subject. The contents are too elaborate even to enumerate. He begins with chapters on the name for leprosy, its history and its geographical distribution, and goes through experimental leprosy in animals and its serology and immunity, and then gives 650 pages to a complete consideration of all aspects of leprosy in man. Finally, there is a useful and full bibliography.
The monograph of 135 pages on leprosy in literature and art by Grön is an example of how thoroughly everything is covered in this encyclopedia. It is an interesting and valuable contribution, and is finely illustrated.
