Another year has gone by since my last review1 appeared; again a large number of papers on allergy have been published. The Journal of Allergy contains many of these. It has an abstract department which has been greatly improved and developed in a wider scope, and it includes also a series of special reviews on certain phases of the study of allergy. Hansel2 has written on allergy as related to otolaryngology and ophthalmology; Feinberg3 has reviewed the progress in asthma; Sulzberger4 has written on allergy in dermatology, and Walzer5 has reviewed the immunology of cutaneous tests. Each of these reviews is good.

In the following summary the selection and arrangement of the material must depend largely on my own personal interest, and I realize that this present combination can satisfy only the general reader. All who are really interested must go to the original sources,
