This volume contains a report of three clinics held by Prof. L. F. Barker, an article on bacteriophagy by d'Harcelle and articles on a number of subjects under the heads of Diagnosis and Treatment, Surgery, Obstetrics, and Progress of Medicine in 1928. An article which is of special interest to ophthalmologists is that entitled, "Biomicroscopy (Slit Lamp), a Clinical Aid to Diagnosis in Ocular Diseases," by Harvey E. Thorpe, M.D., of Pittsburgh, Pa. This gives in thirty pages an illustrated introduction to this new and important method of examination. The matter is based on that found in the recognized textbooks. The instrument is first described ; then follows the technic of its use and its clinical application as an aid in diagnosis.
