Dr. Ross describes the chief pathologic changes to be looked for in the bodies of persons dying from the common diseases and from poisoning. The accounts are necessarily brief, including only the typical changes and the gross appearances of the organs; but the essential facts are given in a clear manner. The book should be of value in the postmortem room, especially to one making occasional examinations, as the technic of performing the examination is described, as well as the lesions likely to be present in typical cases. There are tables of normal weights and measurements and a table of ossification of the bones useful for quick reference.
