This edition of Dr. Bartholow's well-known and popular text-book will undoubtedly continue to receive the approval it has so well deserved in the past. The changes here made are stated by the author to consist in accounts of the newer remedies, and supplying certain omissions, etc., of former editions, with the addition of a chapter on prescription writing. A little more fulness in regard to serum and organotherapy would not have been amiss in a work of this kind, at the present time, and the profession generally may not altogether agree with the author in his conclusions that the success of this treatment has not warranted the claims of its promoters. In view of its extension in so many directions just now, and the results claimed, such opinion seems premature.
