Now in its fourteenth edition, this is a standard work. The present edition begins with an excellent reproduction of the Oath of Hippocrates and provides many new words, particularly relating to the hormones, the vitamins and chemotherapy. Dr. Stedman himself worked on the present edition until May 27, 1938, when he died at the age of 84. The present edition is therefore edited by his nephew, Dr. S. T. Garber.
