While open to many of the criticisms which assail medical compends designed for students, this little work is deserving of much praise as being a very excellent one of its class. Students no doubt often abuse themselves by doing superficial work and glossing over their real ignorance with a little of the more easily acquired knowledge; but, nevertheless, if properly used such books may be made to greatly lighten the tasks of the already overburdened under-graduate. We do not hesitate to pronounce this such a book. Not the least of its many excellencies is the admirable selection of the illustrations, which are uniformly above reproach both in accuracy of design and mechanical execution.
