This work consists of certain special articles on the intercranial circulation. It is not intended as a comprehensive treatise on the subject, but it covers considerable original work. There is much to commend in the book, especially the original experimentation of the pathologists, and the work is a rebuke to howling antivivisectionists for the practical experiments made on dogs and monkeys. Most of the chapters in the work consist of papers read by the author before various societies, extended in some cases and in all revised.
It is a work of interest to all physiologists and pathologists, and practitioners desiring to increase their knowledge on anatomy and physiology of the central circulatory system.
