    THE life of William Osler by Harvey Cushing, published in 1925, has held its place, and must continue to do so, as one of the greatest of medical biographies. The book under review consists of one volume instead of two, and contains, with unaltered text, only eleven of the forty-seven original illustrations. For these reasons it is less expensive than its forerunner and may well enjoy a wider circulation among medical students, to whose purses it is intended especially to appeal.
