This is the third volume of the series of "Masters of Medicine," and the subject is in every way a worthy one. Sir James Simpson's works have always been read with admiration in America, and the older members of the profession owe much to those unrivaled "Lectures on the Diseases of Women," published by Blanchard and Lea in 1863, which had such a wide circulation here. The enumerated list of titles of his works in the Surgeon-General's "Index Catalogue" is prodigious in number and scope. Dr. Gordon has given us a faithful biography of this remarkable man, and it is one of the most interesting volumes of the series so far printed.
