    THE second edition of Prof. Wiggers' book follows the first after an interval of only two years. Special emphasis has been laid on subjects of clinical importance and the book is really a general textbook of clinical science. Chapters are devoted to such subjects as œdema, sleep, acidosis, peripheral vascular disorders, blood-pressure, valvular lesions, fever and diet. The section dealing with the circulation is particularly detailed.
