The volume before us is one of the Physician's Leisure Library Series for 1888. The translation is very well made. The book is most interestingly written. As is always true of what Dujardin-Beaumetz writes, much that is now in physiology, as well as what is now in the therapeutics of the diseases discovered, can be found here. The various chapters bear the following titles: The Liver from a Therapeutic Standpoint, Cholagogues, Treatment of Biliary Lithiasis, Treatment of Jaundice, Treatment of Engorgements of the Liver; Treatment of Inflammations of the Liver, Treatment of Hydatid Cysts of the Liver.
