This great work of Dr. Landois is well known to the medical profession. Its successive editors in Europe and in this country have been rapidly exhausted, and special credit is due to Messrs. P. Blakiston, Son and Co., for the admirable manner in which they have now brought out the third American edition. It is idle to attempt in this brief review, any elaborate description of this valuable treatise. In its treatment of its various subjects, the work is exhaustive, and yet never tedious.

The approved methods of physiological investigation are so clearly expressed, and often so exquisitely illustrated that the student is able to follow the master through each and every demonstration.

Much as we have esteemed our own American Text-Books, it is with no disparagement to any that we assign for this work the foremost place in its methods of dealing with human physiology, histology and microscopical anatomy.
