In 1930 the reviewer had the pleasure of reviewing the first edition of this work at which time he stated that it was “one of the best written and most valuable books upon tropical medicine,” and the second edition which has just appeared does not change his opinion regarding the work. There have been a few additions made to the text, although the size of the work has not been notably increased. A brief chapter has been added on tropical fevers and case taking and the various subjects considered have been brought up to date as far as possible. Each chapter is signed by the author which adds greatly to the value of the work and it is noted that the diseases treated by the two authors are those with which their names are usually connected because of their experience.
