Abstract

1. THE subject-matter of the Harben Lectures, of which the book before us consists, is at the present time of special interest, not only to the medical profession, but to the general public. The country is now thoroughly roused to the importance of the control of tuberculosis, and although the measures considered in Sir R. Thorne Thorne's book are intended primarily for sanitary officials, they should prove of extreme interest and importance to both the general practitioner and the agriculturist.
