This work, which has reached its second edition, covers a wide field. The reasons for limiting its scope must have been lack of space rather than logical arrangement. The pancreas is included, but not the liver. Logical grounds for including typhoid fever and not pellagra or for including Brill's disease, now known to be a form of typhus, are not apparent. Drug therapy is given in the needed detail. A somewhat undiscriminating mention is made of various proprietaries, such as Sanatogen, Listerine, Bacillac, Glycothymolin, Urotropin, Hepptine, etc. Carelessness is indicated in the prescriptions, which are a various mixture of Latin, English and undeclined Latin.
