This is the bound volume of "Braithwaite," so well known in this country and in Great Britain that it needs no introduction at our hands. There was a time when a volume of this size was extremely useful, but the field of medicine is now so vast that it is not possible, in the small compass of such a book as this, to do more than make excerpts from a few medical journals. Considering its narrow and limited horizon, it serves very well those of its patrons who take the Retrospect simply because they always have taken it.
