THIS is really the second edition of Dr. Aders Plimmer's excellent manual. The first appearance of the book was privately printed for use in the practical classes of physiological chemistry at University College, London, but a good many copies were distributed to other teachers, and to the Press. A favourable notice of this preliminary edition appeared in the pages of NATURE at the time. The publication of the book for general sale is an indication of the way in which the teachers of the subject welcomed the new departure in the presentation of the subject. For it Is a new departure; hitherto works on the subject have been written by physiologists; the present book is written by a chemist; it is physiological chemistry as opposed to chemical physiology.

Practical Physiological Chemistry.

By Dr. R. H. Aders Plimmer. Pp. viii + 270. (London: Longmans, Green and Co., 1910.) Price 6s. net.
