Here is a synopsis of both official and proprietary medicinal articles believed by the authors to be currently available in Switzerland. It is more than a materia medica in that a summary of pharmacologic aspects follows each heading under which the drugs are described. The book will be of interest primarily to Swiss practitioners of that section of the country in which German is the language. In the preface the authors point out that the more recent special articles (new proprietary preparations) were formerly highly expensive but that these now compete effectively with and tend to supersede the older remedies. Despite this, careful consideration has been given to nonspecial (officially recognized) preparations of the Federal Swiss Pharmacopeia (Ph. D.) and their magistral prescriptions, the List and Tariff of Drugs (ALT), the magistral formulas that have been accepted by the Basle Sickness Fund (KKBa) and those of the Materia Medica Militaris
