The plan of this book is founded on the author's observation that students of practical medicine have frequently forgotten the pertinent facts learned in their preliminary studies of the fundamental sciences. Hence students are apt to pursue the subject of internal medicine with confused notions of the relations which chemistry, physiology and bacteriology bear to the subject at hand. Time is lost in referring to text-books, and the author has attempted to supply this lack by including, in his account of diseases, the essential facts of the fundamental sciences which find an application in the special case. The work is well done and may profitably be studied, not only by medical students but also by physicians who wish to review the subject.
