This is the fourth revised edition of the excellent work on therapeutics for children. The book is well executed and printed and takes up in detail the treatment of the various conditions with which one has to deal. The illustrations are not numerous, but are good, and portray especially well the various methods employed, including subcutaneous and intravenous medication. The entire book is well suited to help the physician in the treatment and care of infants and children.
The next to the last chapter is on drugs, and the prescriptions are arranged under the conditions to be treated. This should prove of value to the general practitioner. A short chapter on poisons and their antidotes follows.
