THESE three books typify well o the existing state of our knowledge in the field of vitamin science and in its applications. The comprehensive and co-ordinated survey of existing knowledge, useful alike to specialist and general practitioner, to chemist, physiologist and medical man, is represented by this, the first volume of Dr. Harris's series of seven projected monographs. At the opposite extreme we have the new edition of the same author's now well-known popular exposition, one of the best examples of a difficult but important technique—that of making scientific facts and hypotheses understood by the layman without sacrifice of truth or clarity.
