    THIS small volume, which deals mainly with vitamins and scarcely at all with hormones, gives a concise and excellent summary of the achievements of absorption spectroscopy as a valuable adjunct in the isolation and identification of naturally occurring compounds which are present in extremely low concentrations. Dr. Morton's own investigations have played a prominent part in relation to the work on vitamins A and D, and it is unfortunate that the relatively high price will prevent this book from finding its way into the hands of many biochemical research workers who would find much of interest and of value in its pages.
