It is impossible to summarize this large work on the external secretions of the digestive glands. The first edition appeared in 1914, and hence, after nearly fifteen years, a complete revision was necessary. The general plan of the earlier text is followed in the present one, but the additions and amplifications are numerous and extensive. The number of illustrations is increased from 29 to 145. Several new chapters are included, among them being The Continuous Gastric Secretion, The Blood Supply of the Pancreas, The Secretion of Bile and The Function of the Gall Bladder. Considerable attention is paid to the author's own work and to that of his co-workers in Odessa and in Halifax, but the majority of the book consists in a thorough discussion and citation of the literature which has been reviewed carefully through 1926. It constitutes a valuable reference book for all those interested in any way
