This volume of 706 pages contains sixty-eight papers on a great variety of subjects.

Part I, General Pathology and Experimental Medicine, pages 1 to 71, among others contains several articles on climatic bubo, and an article on the anemias in sprue by Colonel Ashford of Porto Rico.

Part II, Mycology and Bacteriology, pages 72 to 403, contains many interesting contributions to blastomycosis, mycetoma, piedra and other mycotic conditions of especial value to students of tropical diseases.

Part III, Dermatology and Syphilis, contains twelve papers dealing with the various phases of leprosy, including Argentine experience with chaulmoogra derivatives and potassium iodide, a description of a case of ainhum, and several papers on cutaneous leishmaniasis.

The papers are all splendidly illustrated. Unfortunately the volume has no index, and much excellent work will therefore remain buried for most foreign readers. Succeeding volumes should be provided with an index.
