This is a treatise on the official preparations of the U. S. Pharmacopeia X and the National Formulary V in a concise form, giving such essentials as the Latin and English titles, synonyms, composition, method of preparation, strength and doses. The book is primarily divided into three parts: first, a section devoted to general information, such as definitions of pharmaceutic processes; second, an alphabetical arrangement of the various drugs, chemicals and their preparations of the Pharmacopeia and National Formulary, respectively; third, general principles that determine their dosage and tables of doses. The volume is well indexed. It is not a remarkable book but is a sensible compend to the students of pharmacy, as well as an informative booklet to the students of medicine who desire a condensed pharmaceutic summary of official preparations.
