Much to this reviewer's relief, and no doubt to that of the readers of this column, publication with subsequent review of the monumental Handbuch der Kinderheilkunde is nearly complete.

The reader will recall that this enormous publishing feat began in 1963, when Volume V (Infectious Diseases) was issued. In the intervening years, 12 massive books of nearly 1,000 pages each have appeared and have, almost without exception, become important reference sources in pediatric libraries.
