This work is intended for students and junior practitioners. The subject is arranged in two divisions, those of physiology and pathology. The author has intended to make the work of high practical value without introducing any unnecessary details.

The printing is good, the illustrations are excellent and the work is very full and complete. By using fine type the publishers have succeeded in introducing as much matter as is usually found in the larger text-books.
