The necessity of a new edition of this text-book has led the author to make a thorough revision of the whole work. The decrease in the use of some of the minor remedies is noted and the space given to them is correspondingly reduced, some of them being entirely discarded. A chapter on antitoxins and their uses has been added. The investigations of recent years have made possible more positive statements regarding the action of some remedies and such groups as that of digitalis receive thorough treatment. New remedies receive appropriate notice. The new edition will continue to maintain the position of the work in the first rank among standard authorities on pharmacology.
