This is a new and greatly modified edition of a work little known to American physicians. Naturally a dictionary in a foreign language will be of little service to the English-speaking physician even when it includes, as does the present work, a good collection of the medical terms of German origin. The work included at first only such terms as were used in the field of clinical medicine, terms relating to materia medica, chemistry and allied topics being omitted. These defects have been remedied in the present edition with the result of increasing the size of the book by about half. Terms derived from or current in other languages than German are defined, so that the usefulness of the work is materially increased. This work may be confidently recommended to German readers, and we can only second the hope expressed by the reviser that as Roth's "Clinical Terminology" has maintained
