This concise monograph summarizes for the physician the French pharmacopeial codex of 1937, which became official in April 1938. The French Codex comprises two volumes: the first, containing the laws and regulations governing the practice of pharmacy, the prescription and sale of poisons, and statements of general interest; the second, the codex proper, containing descriptions, chemical and biologic assays and methods of preparation of the various official substances and mixtures. Professor Hazard discusses omissions, additions and modifications in the new edition of the codex, with special emphasis on the regulations concerning the possession, prescription and sale of nearly 260 narcotics. The book should be of value to those physicians who have an interest in the international ramifications of their pharmacopeia.
