When a book reaches its thirteenth edition and has become a standard authority in two hemispheres, there is little to say by way of review.

We can only congratulate the editor on the new edition, the publisher for the munificent way in which he has supplied the fine paper, the beautiful illustrations and the superb binding.

The new American edition, however, is something more. Certain sections have been rewritten, viz., those on the brain, the teeth and the abdominal viscera. Dr. B. B. Gallaudet, Dr. Fred. J. Brockaway and Prof. J. Playfair McMurrich have had charge of the American revision.
