In this volume articles of special interest are concerned with the usual topics that would fall in the alphabetical classifications, but there are other special articles on such topics as professional negligence, edema (because the British spell it oedema), pain, paralysis, disputed paternity, the pituitary gland and pneumonia. Peptic ulcer is discussed by Dr. Thomas Hunt, edema by Jonathan C. Meakins of McGill University, thus far apparently the only Canadian to be selected as a contributor. This volume is well up to the standard of the previous items in this system of medical practice.
