The success of Vierordt's diagnosis has been very great, for we now have a third edition in a very short space of time. The notice of the first translation was published in this Journal, Vol. XVII, 1891, p. 275. It was then greeted as a a welcome arrival, and fully described. In this system of diagnosis, normal anatomy and physiology are the lamps by which the pathologic processes are illuminated. Anatomy is ever kept in the foreground, and its necessary features are frequently brought forward. No scholar can examine the work without pleasure, and no student can study it without profit. The favorable opinion expressed in respect of the first translation, can be repeated now with the accumulated interest the lapse of time causes us to greet the reappearance of an old favorite.
