This volume, according to Dr. Huntington's statement, includes 15,732 author-titles, representing 6,383 volumes, 14,802 pamphlets; it also contains 5,774 special titles and special books and 21,725 titles of articles in periodicals.

This magnificent index, which has reflected more credit on American medical literature than almost any other work, and has done more to make the medical literature of the work available than any other, is progressing at the rate of two volumes a year, and in the same careful and accurate manner characteristic of the preceeding volumes.

We extend our congratulations to General Sternberg and Deputy Surgeon-General Huntington on the successful continuation of the work, and thanks to the wise Congress which by timely and liberal appropriations made possible this great undertaking.
