The third edition of this valuable manual, revised and enlarged, is just issued from the publishing house of P. Blakiston, Son & Co, A thorough revision of his former work is here presented by the author. The various anæsthetics, local and general, are fully described, and the recorded observations of a large number of physicians experienced in their administration are embodied in the text. The indications for their use are fully described, the cautions to be observed in their administration are properly set forth, and the means to be used to prevent untoward results are explicitly stated. The closing chapter upon "The Medico-Legal Relations of Anæsthetics" will well repay the cost of the work.
