Principles of general physiology.

London: Longmans, Green, 1915.

Bayliss’s book treats of general physiology from the physical chemical point of view. For some years it remained the most important book of its kind, and today is still of great value for its historical information and its accurate bibliography. A fifth edition, edited by L. E.
