The chemical determinations of value to the clinician are given in detail, together with directions for preparing the required reagents. The book is compact, well organized and well printed on a good grade of paper. The subjects covered are the analysis of blood, including quantitative determinations of sulfanilamide and arsenic; the chemical examination of urine, cerebrospinal fluid, feces and gastric contents; testing for poisons, hormones and vitamins, and the determination of renal and hepatic function. The subject index is well prepared, and there is also an author index.
