This book, written to meet the need of students of pharmacognosy, departs, in many particulars, from the works heretofore published in this country. Special emphasis is laid on the microscopic characteristics of blood, though their macroscopic appearance is by no means neglected. Considerable attention is given to drug powders and the chemistry of the various drugs mentioned is touched on. As an introduction to pharmacognosy the book is of practical value, and while written for the student it will be found helpful to the physician who desires to have a good understanding of his materia medica.
