This work contains in all 1096 pages of text, well printed, well but not profusely illustrated, and written by a series of authors of distinct eminence. The work has already gained for itself an enviable reputation in its original German clothing and for all Americans who read English with greater facility than they do German this translation should be welcomed. American and English readers should be particularly glad to be able to refer to such a large chapter as that upon diseases of the brain, from the pen of such a noted author as Professor Liepmann. There is also an excellent chapter on operative treatment of nervous diseases by Professor Krause. The reviewer feels that the amount of space which has been devoted to disorders at the psychological level is hardly sufficient in a work of this size, although it is probable, from the character of the matter included, namely Paresis, Epilepsy, Idiocy and Imbecility, and Hysteria and Psychasthenic States and Traumatic Neuroses, that the authors intended to include only distinctly, what have been called organic conditions, with the exception of such functional states as Hysteria, which might lead to confusion of diagnosis.

The work will be of distinct value to the practicing neurologist, and it will also be a useful work for the general practitioner to consult, but its size and its cost will probably prevent its extensive use by students.
