This book will save the practitioner a great deal of work and be distinctly to his advantage, as there is every reason to believe that the general dietary is seldom carried out with the same care in private practice that is characteristic of it in hospitals, especially in military and naval service, where, as a rule, the diet is prescribed for the patient even before the prescription is written, and it is made possible with these lists to carry out the diet system in private practice with great ease. In addition to the list of articles given there is a collection of sick-room dietaries at the end of the book, which gives almost all of the forms of sick-room foods. These lists have been printed and bound in a book and perforated, so that they may be torn out when we have a patient to nurse as occasion may require.
