The Brain in Health and Disease. Joseph Shaw Bolton, M.D London, Edward Arnold, 1914, pp. 479.

Those familiar with psychiatric literature have already, in past years, followed the work of Dr. Bolton as it has appeared from time to time in the Journal of Mental Science. It is a source of gratification that he has accumulated it and now offers it in a single volume. The work is perhaps particularly interesting at this time because it no longer stands alone.

In fact he has made this interesting comparison.
