This work is a second edition of two previous compends on pathology by the author, and includes a new chapter on the nervous system and several additional illustrations; a general revision has also been made. The treatment of the subjects is, naturally, brief, but the illustrations are numerous and the text is generally good. In a few instances, however, the definitions are rather brief, and might have been bettered in some respects; for instance, the author speaks of dementia paralytica as a "peculiar cortical lesion associated with gradual loss of memory," which gives a somewhat erroneous idea of the subject. Taken altogether, the statements are fairly clear. The make-up of the work, with its flexible binding and gilt edges, is excellent.
