We have tested this book for its account of several of the newer remedies and find it quite accurate, so far as our test goes. There is no doubt but it will be found useful in many countries beside India, for which it was originally prepared. The additions to the last revisions of the British and U. S. Pharmacopeias are included in this work. It appears there has been no revision of the Indian Pharmacopeia since the edition of 1868.

The compilation has been well done; the arrangement is systematic and convenient.
