German-English Medical Dictionary. By Joseph R. Waller, M.D. Fifth edition, improved and enlarged by M. White, M.D. Cloth. Price, 10 marks. Pp. 389. Leipsic: Franz Deuticke, 1925.

In the preparation of these brief dictionaries, the authors have attempted to supply simple definitions, usually in one or two words, and to add all the words that have recently come into medical use. While the German-English section is convenient, the English-German presents English spellings that are obsolete, and many words that could have but little use in the ordinary medical vocabulary. We cite, for example, "aguish," "apepsy," "ebriety," "enfamish" and "frigorific."
