This is the third volume of the French system two volumes of which have already been reviewed.

In general, this volume carries on much the same as the others. It takes up the circulatory, respiratory and gastro-intestinal systems. The chapter on bronchopneumonia is especially good. The illustrations in some places are not as good as in previous volumes, but those on the mediastinal shadows are especially clear. The defect of this volume is that of the previous ones, that is, there is almost a total lack of reference to foreign literature, although in many of the conditions described outstanding work has been done by investigators who are not French. The gastro-intestinal disturbances are extensively treated. On the whole, the book is creditable.
