This book, in its preceding editions, has been before the public long enough to be well known. All the works written by Professor Bartholow are deservedly popular, for they are clearly and well written. The present volume covers the usual ground gone over by treatises on this subject. Electricity, its nature and modes of manifestation, are first considered; then the means of generating it; later electro physiology, or its physiological action; and finally its use as a diagnostic and therapeutic agent. The additions to this edition have been chiefly to the sections on therapeutics. The portions devoted to electric illumination and galvano-cautery have been enlarged. Galvano-faradization and electric baths are also described. Without doubt this edition will maintain the popularity of the work.
