So far as a notice can help or harm a book there is no particular use in a journalistic notice of Biddle's "Materia Medica," a book almost as staple as flour, and a title page as familiar to the profession as a picture of the front of the Capitol. It is sufficient to say that the thirteenth edition of this standard work has been revised to conform to the requirements of the new Pharmacopœia, and all its elements of popularity have been retained. We venture to suggest to the compiler of the fourteenth edition, that he give the dosage in the decimal or metric system in the text of the book as well as in the appendix.
