This book is devoted to the study of the recognition of plant drugs. The author is an experienced teacher, a botanist of recognized ability, and an expert pharmacognosist. The book is the second edition of a much smaller volume, but it has been almost entirely rewritten and brought up to date in every way. The author's name being sufficient guarantee that its subject matter has been selected with great care, the book should be in the library of every progressive pharmacist and food and drug analyst. The chapter devoted to the examination of powdered vegetable drugs and foods is especially valuable; Dr. Kraemer is a leader in this field of investigation and the chapter devoted to this subject gives much evidence of the careful, painstaking work for which he is known.
