A bibliography of no less than 2,177 titles gives an idea of the scope of this compendium, which is surely an unsurpassed reference book on the subject of the bile. Unfortunately the text is made up of terse and often disjointed statements of fact or experimental work; there is no smooth continuity or unified point of view. Indeed the reviewer found it practically impossible to plough straight through this plexus of more or less uncoordinated statements. It was a surprise also not to find chemical formulas for bile pigments and acids given anywhere in the text. None the less, as an encyclopedia on bile, the book should prove most useful.
