This little book, which is narrow and slender, may be carried in the pocket and is an epitome of the subject. It is divided into three parts, the first dealing with dosage and therapeutics. The second with the treatment of disease in infants and children, and the third part is given to recipes. It has an interesting summary of the list of drugs and dietary substances which have been found useful in the treatment of diseases of children in Sydney, Australia. Each chapter is alphabetically arranged. Some of the titles, however seem to be rather colloquial than scientific, such as "Inward Fits " page 182; "Rickets in Australia," page 240. The book will be found extremely useful. It is well printed and convenient.
