Each year the Council on Pharmacy and Chemistry considers a large number of preparations, reviews the status of articles already accepted, and presents in the successive editions of this volume a reliable guide to the new and nonofficial preparations worthy of consideration and use by the medical profession.

Before a preparation can be admitted to this book it is required that its qualitative and quantitative composition be declared, that the therapeutic claims made for it be truthful, and that it have or give promise of having real therapeutic value. To be retained in the book, a preparation must be advertised truthfully and maintain the promise of therapeutic value that it gave at its acceptance. The Council judges these matters by a set of "Rules," which appear in the first part of the volume and which will repay reading by those interested in the pharmacology, therapeutic use or manufacturing of drugs.
