Dr. Butler is well known as a writer of one of the best text-books on materia medica and as a medical writer of more than usual merit, as well as the editor of a semi-popular magazine which has deservedly met with commendation from the profession and others. In this volume he has collected a number of little essays and bits of poetical prose, with one or two more lengthy contributions in verse which have appeared during the past few years. They are brought out in excellent style on a fine quality of paper with broad margins. The only criticism we want to make is that there is too much blank space in the book that we wish might have been filled with a like quality of matter.
