Nervous Diseases. By Robert Bing. (Translted by Charles L. Allen, M.D.) New York: Rebman Company, 1915, pp. 481.

Doctor Bing has been well and favorably known for some years as a result of his most admirable and lucid exposition in his Compendium of Regional Diagnosis of the principles of localization in the nervous system. The present work is marked by the same character of lucidity that made the former one so popular. It is a most excellent treatise on the general subject of neurology.

The reviewer notes that the author has taken the bull by the horns, so to speak, and included all of the motor disturbances under the general caption of the Dyskinesias, while he very properly also includes all of the syphilitic diseases of the nervous system under one heading, the Syphilogenic Diseases, these include both Tabes and Paresis. Some fifty pages is devoted to the subject of the Psychoneuroses. It is gratifying to see this most important matter being dealt with more and more fully by the neurologists. The psychoses are not discussed.

The work is very fully illustrated, many of the illustrations being the same as those used in the Compendium. The diagrammatic illustrations are crude artistically, but perhaps serve their purpose all the better because they are made to emphasize the very particular point that the author is trying to make. On the whole the work is an excellent one.
