Although this is the first volume of an extensive work which began to appear in 1927, it is among the last volumes to be finished; all but one of the eleven volumes are off the press, and the preparation of a second edition of volumes VII and XI is announced. Each volume is complete in itself and deals with a definite division of normal and pathologic physiology. The editors have had the aid of a large number of collaborators, and the subdivisions of the subject matter of each volume are treated by various authors. This volume of 1,136 pages, the largest so far issued, deals with the following topics: the general properties of living matter, general cellular physiology, tissue culture, physical chemistry of the cells, cellular constitution, the action of physical agents (pressure, radiant energy and electricity), the action of roentgen rays and of radioactive substances, toxins, ferments and venoms.
