This booklet is a ready reference to the thousands of products now available in the Pharmacopeia, the National Formulary, New and Nonofficial Remedies and other lists of medicinal agents. So rapidly does the field develop that one looks in vain for some products already advertised and in common use. In general, proprietary preparations are omitted although reference is made to some because of their wide use or some other special interest. For the material that it contains the book is exceedingly useful as a ready reference.
