This work, which is properly a serial, is a summary of the advance in certain lines of medical science. The subjects here discussed are diseases of the thorax and its viscera, including the heart and lungs, of which the recent literature is very adequately epitomized by Dr. William Ewart; dermatology and syphilis by William S. Gottheil; diseases of the nervous system by Dr. William G. Spiller and obstetrics by Dr. Richard C. Norris. In all four departments the book will be found well up to date and contains a well-digested summary of the principal contributions to the recent literature. We can say nothing but good of this series which Dr. Hare has so ably edited during the past few years.
