This is an excellent work and should be in every physician's library, as up to a recent time the history of medicine has been greatly neglected, but within a few years numerous works have appeared on the subject.
The work is well illustrated, portraits being given of many of the noted medical men. It is not only of interest to physicians and medical students, but to laymen as well. And this brief work, while it does not aim to be anything but an epitome, gives a fair understanding of the subject.
It is open to criticism in some respects. Hardly enough credit has been given to surgeons of the Arabic period, but in the main there is little from which to dissent and as a whole we have nothing but commendation.
