This, the second volume of Dr. Fagge'swork, deals with diseases of the Heart, the Digestive Organs, Liver, Spleen, and Kidneys, and of the Bones, Joints, Blood and Skin. There is, we think, more to be said in praise of this than of the first volume. Much of the matter in the second volume is by writers who have had the opportunity of revising their own proofsheets, and what they have written was only recently written, whereas much of the matter written by Dr. Fagge was prepared some time before his death. Many of the sections were left in an unfinished state at his death, and these have been completed, in an admirable manner, by the Editor and Dr. Wilkes, and at times it is rather difficult to say whether we are reading after Dr. Fagge, Dr. Pye-Smith, or Dr. Wilkes.

In many respects this work is very valuable for reference.
