We have no hesitancy in pronouncing this system one of the best that has lately appeared; one altogether creditable to American medicine. In its pathology it is modern, in its treatment conservative and in diagnosis accurate and exhaustive. The careful reader will find himself fully informed of the latest teachings of the time and consequently well equipped for his daily work. As a work of reference it will be found very satisfactory, and the practitioner will make no mistake who follows its teachings closely.

The only criticism we make in relation to the book is that the old system of dosage is unfortunately adhered to throughout the volume.
