                                The greater portion of the paper is devoted 
to the consideration of the subject to which I 
have now referred. The author also describes 
at some length the method he employed in 
injecting the vessels of the lungs. The chief 
novelty of his plan is the simultaneous injection 
of two sets of vessels by an equal amount of 
pressure, by means of an apparatus which he 
has contrived for the purpose.
The author here and there refers to some 
points in the physiology of the lungs, and his 
views of the subject are certainly peculiar 
ones. For examples, in speaking of “the tissue 
of the pleura itself” he says “this structure ‘must 
‘therefore be a product of secretion of the cellular 
tissue immediately beneath it” P.5.
while he admits that the mucous membrane of 
the bronchial tubes is nourished from the bronchial 
vessels he believes the bronchial mucus to be 
furnished by the pulmonary vessels. P55.56.
