The full proceedings, addresses, papers and discussions of the International Medical Congress at Washington, September, 1887, have been published and distributed to the members and others who were entitled to copies; making five royal octavo volumes of over 760 pages each, an aggregate of 3,800 pages, and about 600 illustrations. The Transactions of the great International Medical Congress at London, in August, 1881, are comprised in four royal octavo volumes averaging 638 pages, an aggregate of 2,552 pages and 180 illustrations.

It will be seen that the Transactions of the Washington Congress contain nearly one-third more printed matter and three times as many illustrations as those of the London Congress. For style of printing, quality of illustration, and we may venture to add for value of matter, they will bear favorable comparison with the Transactions of any one of the preceding International Medical Congresses. Much credit is due to ex-Secretary-General
