This edition embodies the 1947 edition (edition 24), now termed volume 1. Pages 1928-2057, volume 2, describe 171 new drugs considered official and 88 new nonofficial drugs. The descriptions follow the usual Dispensatory style, i. e., they give official, unofficial and trade names; names of manufacturers or distributors; chemical formulas; accounts of the discovery and methods of manufacture; tests and standards; pharmacologic properties; therapeutic uses; toxicology, and dosage. Volume 2 is indexed separately. This review is based on the copy containing volumes 1 and 2 in one binding, but for those who already own volume 1, volume 2 has been published separately.
