This collection of brief descriptions of remedies "that might be recommended to physicians" is edited by a committee somewhat analogous to the Council on Pharmacy and Chemistry of the American Medical Association, which was originated in 1911 by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für innere Medicin. The booklet itself differs from New and Nonofficial Remedies in that it gives information on official remedies also. It is, indeed, intended as a physician's handbook. Systematic attention is given to the cost of remedies and even of finished prescriptions, which seems to be demanded by the prevailing financial condition of the country, and most especially of the krankenkassen.
