The third edition has been prepared from the notes left by Doctor Hewlett and represents a memorial tribute to the great clinician and physiologist who died in the prime of life. There has been a complete and thorough revision of the entire volume so as to include recent developments in physiologic and clinical fields.

To the chapter on the heart are added the theory of circus movement, the use of quinidine in auricular fibrillation, the discussion of clinical ventricular fibrillation, and mention of the new work on the relation of the cervical sympathetic to angina pectoris.

The chapter on digestion includes the recent work of Ivy on the various phases of gastric secretion, Bloomfield and Keefer's method of gastric analysis and other aspects of gastro-intestinal physiology. Insulin is included in the discussion of diabetes mellitus, and the newer work on the relationship of changes in the energy metabolism to obesity
