The first edition of this work appeared two years ago, and was fully reviewed in these columns.

In this, the second edition, we notice a number of changes and additions, which add considerably to the value of the work. Vol. I has been enlarged by the addition of 18 new pages and several new illustrations. Among the additions to this volume may be mentioned the use of pure carbolic acid and alcohol in the disinfection of wounds and septic cavities, the carbolic acid treatment of tetanus, the use of gelatin in the treatment of certain hemorrhages, the modern treatment of wounds of the head, etc. Intraspinal cocainization is described and properly condemned, except, perhaps, under special conditions. The chapter on diseases of the lymph system has been entirely rewritten and materially improved. Attention is particularly directed to the recent work done on splenic anemia. We fail to find any reference
