This edition represents an amplification of the cases in former editions. Three hundred and seventeen cases are analyzed and discussed in a quite novel manner, and are grouped according to symptomatology and physical findings. It is composed of nineteen chapters, a large portion of the work being devoted to abdominal tumors and enlargements and to such topics as vertigo, dyspepsia, diarrhea and edema. The book is printed in large type on good paper and is profusely illustrated. It is very readable, and contains a great amount of information gained from a large experience. It should be particularly valuable to the general practitioner in medicine.
