The appearance of an eighth edition of a work, whether a compilation or an original treatise, is sufficient proof of its merits. We always regret the appearance of a book which is intended to take the place of a certain amount of necessary study, or which depends for its success on the supposed laziness of the student or practitioner. The book under consideration, however, does not come under this class. It has evidently been prepared with the presupposition that the reader has studied medicine so far that he may understand the therapeutic directions given therein; and if he has, its use as a reference book will be of much service. It is properly classified and indexed.
