Here is something new—at least, as far as we are aware. The first two volumes of the Doctor's Recreation Series promise that the set will be a very interesting addition to the physician's library. Volume I contains a wealth of humorous short stories, puns and anecdotes of a medical nature. The selections are very well made and many a delightful interval may be passed in their perusal.

Volume 2 is a book of several longer stories concerning the physician's daily life. The volumes are large and well bound, and are illustrated with reproductions of famous paintings of appropriate subjects. It will be interesting to watch for subsequent volumes of this series.
