This reference handbook may be warmly recommended to the general practitioner. The fact that it is the seventh edition since 1891 shows in itself that the book has found a gratifying reception. Practical information may be confidently expected on what to do in the many exigencies of practice, from abdominal wounds and abortion to writers' cramp, yaws and yellow fever. The chief disadvantage of this book for the American practitioner lies in the fact that the nomenclature and preparations of the British Pharmacopeia are employed, and that unfortunately there does not exist as yet any great degree of uniformity in the pharmacopeias of the two great English speaking nations.
