The number of editions through which this work has gone in its thirteen years of existence speaks not only for its popularity but for the keen interest of the author and publisher in keeping it up to date. Now in its tenth edition, it maintains a compactness and conciseness essential for student and quick reference use. True to the word Grundriss the discussions of the various disease states are brief. Tuberculosis, for example, is covered in eight pages and brucellosis in less than three. Essential facts, however, are not omitted, and discussions of controversial subjects are evaded. References are rarely given. The general plan and style of previous editions are maintained.
