The original plan of the authors to prepare a handbook of medicine has been preserved throughout the various editions of this work. The present edition is still a handy pocket size volume with a flexible back. It is a careful revision of the previous edition. Some sections have been rewritten; for example, those on vitamins, pernicious anemia, epidemic encephalitis and arthritis deformans. There have been added sections on syphilis of the stomach, hepatic efficiency, cholecystography, acute febrile poliomyelitis, and some of the neuroses. Even so, the size of the volume has not been much increased. Dr. Jack, who made all the previous revisions from the second to the eighth, passed away in 1927, and Dr. Henderson alone has revised the present edition.
