This book has been divided into three parts. The first, which deals with general principles and apparatus, consists of sixteen chapters. The pharmaceutic operations and many pieces of apparatus employed are described and are accompanied by illustrations. The second part, on official preparations, constitutes twenty chapters describing the preparations of the British pharmacopeia, including many explanatory comments relative to the origin and reasons for certain directions of the various articles used, which should prove valuable to students, particularly those preparing for pharmaceutic examinations. The last section deals with some biologic aspects of pharmacy, described in five chapters; namely, vaccines and serums, the preparation of vaccines, sterilization, surgical dressings, and enzymes. Appendixes are added, consisting of a section on the stabilization of drugs, a table of doses, strengths and solubilities, and a comprehensive index. The book as a whole will be of value to students of pharmacy in the United Kingdom,
