"Medical Terminology," compiled by R. Aberhalden, is a medical dictionary comparable to our standard texts. It is not as all inclusive as, for example, Dorland's, and with a single exception contains no illustrations. It appears to fill an important place in the German medical literature, for, as the author points out, there have been no German medical dictionaries published for a number of years. A novel feature from the point of view of a German author is the inclusion in the dictionary of terms belonging to the related sciences such as physiology, physics, botany and physiologic chemistry in particular. Although limited in scope, the dictionary impresses one as a valuable contribution to German medical literature.
