This book is intended to aid the physician in his intercourse with German patients and in reading German medical works. It will be found useful both by those who possess only an elementary knowledge of German and by those more advanced in its study.

The text is separated into two main divisions. The first is practically a glossary of medical termsand words likely to be used in conversation with the sick. The second consists of conversations, questions and answers. There are also German and English indexes which contain nearly 1,400 words.

The utility of such books is undeniable, but they only supplement a study of the grammar and literature. They can not supplant it.
