This fifth and last volume of the French system of pediatrics, edited by Nobécourt and Babonneix, takes up, first, diseases of the nervous system and associated conditions, including those of the muscles. This part of the work is extensive and well done and is excellently and elaborately illustrated. This is followed by a section on therapeutics, the first part of which consists of prescriptions, many of which would be unintelligible to American readers. The rest of the therapy, however, is extensive in detail and broadly conceived, including climatotherapy and physical therapy. There is a chapter on insufficiency of the respiration and reeducation and also one on biologic medication. The whole volume is in line with the other four and is very complete. This is followed by an index for the five volumes.
