This well-known text-book has been again revised to meet the needs of the practitioner, especially by incorporating information with regard to some of the newer remedies and some of the newer methods of therapy. The local use of magnesium sulphate for relief of pain and inflammation, the Lenhartz method of treating gastric ulcer and Murphy's treatment of peritonitis are examples of these newer methods. A number of illustrative prescriptions have been added. These modifications serve to keep the book well abreast of therapeutic progress.
