This American reproduction of a well-known British work is a valuable addition to our literature on its subject. In the main, the American editor has, as he says, left the text intact. adding only, in the appendix, a few notes on dietetic preparations, intubation, drugs, etc., and certain surgical procedures, these last additions being made by Dr. T. Halsted Myers. The formulæ have been entirely rewritten to conform to the U. S. Pharmacopeia. Inspection of the work shows it to be a modern text-book that will very fairly meet the needs of the practitioner. Some subjects that just now are prominent are rather briefly treated, that of adenoids for example, which is disposed of in hardly more than half a page, but what is said is probably sufficient. The book is well illustrated and has an excellent index.
