This volume represents presumably the first half of a new German textbook on internal medicine. The several sections are written by different authors. The section on infectious diseases is by Prof. H. Dennig, of Stuttgart, that on diseases of blood by Prof. H. Schulten, of Cologne, that on diseases of metabolism and internal secretion by Prof. H. Reinwein, of Kiel, that on diseases of bones, joints and musculature by Dr. M. Broglie, of Schleswig, and that on diseases of the mediastinum the respiratory system by Prof. A. Heymer, of Essen-Werden. To come later are sections covering diseases of the heart, the gastrointestinal system, the urinary tract and the nervous system.
