This edition has been largely rewritten to conform to the new Pharmacopeia; many new articles have been added and material considered obsolete or of slight importance has been omitted. The new matter includes a list of incompatibles for each drug, as well as descriptions of many comparatively new drugs, chiefly synthetics, which makes the book more valuable for practicing physicians. The articles on acetanilid, acetphenetidin, acids, alkalies, animal extracts and several standard drugs have been rewritten. The general arrangement of the subjects is the same as in previous editions.
