The authors have skilfully and accurately brought the clinical entity, argyria, up to the minute in a fairly concise yet complete monograph of 133 pages. Not only is the subject critically reviewed, but a complete bibliographic reference to date is given, covering practically every phase of the subject. It is particularly timely because of the widespread use and application of silver preparations for an increasing assortment of ailments. The importance of proper dosage, compounds in general use, modes of administration, preparations most frequently used, and other such matters are critically investigated, and conclusions are based on scientific evaluation and determinations. The volume is of value to the general practitioner and to the specialist alike, since it not only concerns itself with the detailed clinical aspect of the subject but incorporates perhaps the best chapter written so far on the pharmacophysiologic effects of the administration of silver. Every effort is made
