As is implied in the title page, the present volume is a new edition of a former work, namely, “Respiration”, by Prof. J. S. Haldane, published by the Yale University Press. Even in the title page, there are quite a number of changes as between the present work and the former one. At the outset, the Clarendon Press is to be congratulated upon the production of an attractive volume, and the original author is to be congratulated on having secured the help of Dr. Priestley. Nor must it be forgotten that Priestley's collaboration in authorship has a particular appropriateness, for Priestley was Haldane's helpmate in the particular research which in one sense formed the climax of Haldane's work, the discovery of a simple method for the analysis of alveolar air and the consequent investigation of the effect of carbonic acid on respiration.
