Dr. Bartholow has signalized his restoration to health by the production of a little book on cholera, at once authoritative, and complete in its detail. The time has gone by when a book is judged by its bulk. What is wanted is a clear and simple statement of the existing facts as they are known. The study of bacteriology, and the immortal discovery of Koch, have relegated the older books to the top shelves in the library, where they are scarcely looked into except by some bibliophile or curious searcher after the obsolete. No single topic in general medicine exceeds cholera in the number of titles of books and articles devoted to its discussion, and Dr. Bartholow has shown how all that is absolutely necessary for the practitioner to know about it may be compressed into a few pages. Nearly one-half the book is given to the treatment.
