This work furnishes an excellent reference book for the laboratory worker, and has a value as a text book especially in post graduate courses in neuropathology. A short history in the first chapter, with its bibliography, is an excellent résumé of the historical high lights in investigations of the cerebrospinal fluid. The second chapter abstracts the recent theories of physiology and affords a valuable anatomical working knowledge for research workers along these lines. Chapter III, with its illustrations of apparatus and instruments, is one of the best descriptions of the mechanics of spinal and ventricular puncture in the literature.

The physico-chemical handling in Chapters IV and V is made most complete by its tables and charts which give it a high reference value to the laboratory worker. The application of the knowledge in these chapters, make this book most useful in helping the laboratory investigator of spinal fluids to steer clear from the errors which creep into this procedure.
