This excellent text is now in its seventh edition. This edition has among its authors Philip Bard, M.D., Johns Hopkins University; Edward P. Carter, M.D., John's Hopkins University; J. M. D. Olmstead, M.D., University of California; J. M. Peterson, M.D., University of Aberdeen, and N. B. Taylor, M.D., University of Toronto.

Many of the chapters have been rewritten, and the whole book has been brought up to date. It is especially full in consideration of the physiology of the circulatory system, but the whole volume is such as to appeal to one interested in scientific medicine. It should prove a boon to students and practitioners, who will find few texts which contain this information.
