This handbook takes up the various diseases of the skin, in alphabetical order, without regard to classification, an arrangement which although very convenient, necessarily gives rise to some overlapping, and causes the reader to make various digressions to other pages when reading on any particular topic. For students preparing for examination, and for practitioners as a ready reference book, it will be found very useful. It is to be regretted that all the prescriptions, very numerously dispersed throughout the volume, are written in the old style, and that the decimal system is entirely ignored. When the new British Pharmacopœia shall make its appearance, it is understood that the decimal system will be adopted and then there will be no pharmacopœia in any language adhering to the old system. The trend of modern science in all departments is toward universality, and it is a pity to see a new book so
