Additions to the amount of almost one hundred pages have been made to this edition of Dr. Bartholow's very popular book. Some things that the reader would wish to refer to and learn more of are, however, not mentioned in this edition, e.g., lanoline, ichthyol, salt-water infusion, blood-injections. Among the additions we find descriptions of antifebrin, antipyrin, strophanthus, sparteine, and other recent drugs. The author has, almost to perfection, that impartial judgment and ability to weigh evidence that is most necessary for a writer on materia medica; and this is shown on every page of his book. The very complete clinical index is one of the many excellent features of the book.
