This is the English imprint of the work as issued in Edinburgh, and notwithstanding the author asserts that the book being of limited size can not aspire to be of the nature of an exhaustive treatise on histology, yet it will be seen that the field is thoroughly covered, and that the work has been well done. Scotch pathologists and histologists seem to predominate among the English medical books, and it must be confessed that they have taken a high place. For students and practitioners, desiring to refresh themselves with histologic work, the book of Clarkson will be found to be a trustworthy and very satisfactory guide. Mr. Saunders has done well to introduce it to the American public.
