This volume, now in its eighth edition, has sold more than 60,000 copies. It is an a-b-c guide to medical knowledge, a sort of first aid to the physician who needs ready reference. While it is not a complete work in the sense that some of the larger reference handbooks are, it is much more than a dictionary.
