· PREFACE

TO

THE SIXTH EDITION

I HAVE again subjected the book to a thorough revision, and the changes which are now introduced into the practical exercises are those which experience has shown to be advisable. In the large text it has been necessary to rewrite a good many parts, mainly on account of our increased knowledge of the proteins and of the way they are utilised in the body. The sections relating to blood coagulation and to respiration have been much amplified in order to include many facts which are the result of recent research.

In my endeavour to bring the work abreast of advances in science, and at the same time to keep it within moderate limits, I have to acknowledge help and valuable suggestions from Mr. J. Barcroft, M.A. (especially in connection with Respiration), from Professor T. G. Brodie, F.R.S., and from my two colleagues at King's College, Dr. Lyle and Dr. O. Rosenheim; both of these have been of great assistance to me in reading the proof-sheets, and Dr. Lyle is again responsible for the Index.
