This ponderous volume of 1755 pages, is published in the usually good style of the well-known publishing house of Henry C. Lea's Son & Co. The two former editions have made the general merits of the work so well known that an extended notice of this edition is unnecessary.

The present edition bears all the marks of a careful and full revision, in which the latest revision of the several national pharmacopœias has been rendered available. More than 100 pages of additional matter have been added to this edition of the work, making it perhaps as complete and valuable as any work of the kind in the English language. From Jansen, McClurg & Co., Chicago.
