None of Osler's friends could be surprised at the enduring interest in his writings, though even the most intimate have always been astonished by their quantity and variety. On his seventieth birthday Osler himself wrote of Miss Blogg's original compilation, 1919, it "brought the thrill of the day when I saw revealed the utter shamelessness of my life, a bibliography of my writings extending to 740 articles." What would he say of the present work, which records more than 1,500 separate items to the credit of what he called his "ink-pot career"? A revision of the classified bibliography in Dr. Abbott's "Osier Memorial Volume," 1926, of the International Association of Medical Museums, this edition supplies a complete index to the titles of his publications. They are arranged in seven classes: natural science, pathology (comparative and human), clinical medicine, literature (history, biography), education and medical profession, public welfare and volumes edited.
