This concise little volume is familiar to American as well as to English physicians, the present edition numbering the thirty-sixth thousand copies.

The necessary revisions have been made. The derivatives obtained from coal, tar and alcohol, which are now so prominently presented as new remedies, are incorporated in the text. The volume is compact in form, with flexible morocco cover, and can be conveniently carried in the pocket. The posological tables are very complete, and the Therapeutical Index at the close of the volume will be found helpful, as suggestive of appropriate remedies, especially in times of emergency.
