This work has now been before the American public for some years and the sixth edition is evidence of the favor with which it has been received. The present edition brings up the data nearly to the present time, reviewing the methods and discoveries that have originated within the three years since the appearance of the fifth edition. There are possibly some omissions, some of which, however, are what might be called discretionary in a work of this kind; thus, in noticing the leading pathogenic organisms, especially of the leading microbic diseases, no mention is made of the scarlatina coccus, which has probably been recognized alike by American and European authorities, though the more questionable bacillus of syphilis is noted. The present edition is nicely gotten up and will retain undoubtedly the good will of the medical profession that has been given to the former editions.
