The new edition of this work embodies the latest improved advances, newly established facts and methods in this branch of practical medicine. There are many new engravings and colored plates. We can repeat the favorable mention we gave the first edition of this work, and can only say that the new one will be found even more valuable. We notice with pleasure that in the directions for bacteriologic diagnosis the metric system of weights and measures is used throughout the volume. The colored plates of bacteria are accurate and comprehensive. All classes of practitioners, general and special, are aware of the fact that they can not have too many good books on diagnosis. In this class Musser's book fairly belongs. A full index adds to the value of the book.
