This large two volume work of galenic pharmacy (in French) is not a treatise on this subject but rather a course on pharmacy that has been delivered by Prof. Albert Goris during the last dozen years before the Faculty of Pharmacy in Paris. While chiefly designed for students, it is also likely to be found useful by practicing pharmacists as well as by physicians. It contains an interesting chapter on the history of pharmacy and a chapter on the classification, choice and conservation of medicaments. The composition of vegetable substances and assay processes are next taken up, and the various forms of drugs, the various pharmaceutic processes and their resultant preparations occupy the remaining portions of these two volumes. The work is brought down to date in the second volume, much of the space of which is occupied by a discussion of ferments, organotherapy and opotherapy, vaccinotherapy, serotherapy and bacteriotherapy.
