    IT is much to be regretted that in Great Britain there is a decay of interest in the physiology of the special senses. Among representative physiologists, there are extremely few who might be called special sense physiologists. The present volume bears witness, however, that this is not the case in Germany. The volume is a convenient fasciculus, the fifth of its kind, forming in reality a reprint of collected papers published from the school of von Kries in the Zeitschrift für Sinnesphysiologie. The papers describe congenital colour-blindness in one eye (J. von Kries), similarity of taste in mixed solutions (E. v. Skramlik), minimal luminosity in colour sense (E. Engelking and F. Poos), and the geometric representation of multiplicity of sensations (J. von Kries). Each contribution must be studied first-hand for its merits.
