On the whole it must be said that this ambitious undertaking has been brought to a successful issue. The three volumes mentioned can not but prove valuable additions to the physician's library. The subjects considered are presented in an interesting and instructive manner. The editor's discussion of the principles of physiologic therapeutics is clear and thoughtful and should be read by all physicians who wish to substitute rationalism for blind empiricism in their treatment of disease. Probably the introduction of such words as toxolysin and toxolysis for antitoxin and its action on toxin must be regarded as rather ill-chosen innovations because they do not express correctly the nature and actions of antitoxin. The whole system merits wide distribution because it certainly represents a strong and successful effort to give an exposition of the very important methods of treatment, preventive and curative, now available other than drug giving.
