Abstract

Only eighteen months after the fourteenth, or semicentennial, edition of this classic medical text, a fifteenth edition appears. This achievement is especially note worthy when one considers the difficulty in obtaining material and labor during these war years and is first hand evidence of the demand of students and practitioners for the work.

This text by a single author is 1,498 pages in length, including a most detailed index, and adheres closely to the arrangement of the fourteenth edition. Scattered throughout the book one finds instances in which additions have been interpolated. For example, page 361 (1) deals with ornithosis, while page 361 (2) treats of phlebotomus fever. The indications for use of some of the newer drugs are mentioned in detail, as for example, penicillin and totaquine, and an up-to-date bibliography on these recent advances in medicine leaves little to be wished.
