A book of the type which Wells has written can be written only by one who is thoroughly conversant with both chemistry and immunity; a book that is so easily read can be written only by one who can clearly differentiate the essential from the less essential; a book that is so concise and so condensed can be written only by an experienced teacher. While the reviewer may find no great alterations from the first edition, the revision takes cognizance of practically all the recent developments in immunology. Thus Wells definitely puts aside the lipoids as antigens — this in line with the consensus of most immunologists. Of course, such rejection by no means lessens the importance of the lipoids in many immunologic processes because of their rather diverse physical properties. As one of a series of monographs issued by the American Chemical Society the book fulfils every requirement that
