II. La Cure Razionale del Tisici e i Sanatorii.Del Dottor Ausorio Zubiani. Milano: Manueli Hopeli. 1898.
These two little volumes from the Milan publishing house of Ulric Hoepli are in evidence of the demand of the Italian medical profession to be kept in touch with the latest results of scientific investigation. The first is a convenient, handy manual of actinoscopy that appears to be, though brief, tolerably full and up-to-date. It is profusely illustrated with skiagraphs that are reproduced in half-tone and which are very clear and intelligible.
The second volume is a discussion of the treatment of tuberculosis with special reference to the care in sanitariums and by the open air treatment, rather discarding the serum therapy methods that have been and are still somewhat in vogue. The author makes a strong plea for the establishment of such sanitaria for the benefit of the poor.
