This small book contains a series of lectures delivered to junior medical students of Adelaide University. These lectures are intended to portray the continuity and increasing volume of the stream of medical knowledge rather than to present the details of the History of Medicine. The material is presented under seven chapter heads: Primitive Medicine, The Grecian Period, The Greco-Roman Period, the Dark Ages and the Hippocratic Tradition, The Middle Ages and the Universities, The Renaissance, and The Period of Consolidation. The style of this book is pleasing and the typography excellent. It can be recommended as fulfilling its stated purpose.
