It is a just compliment to Dr. Boston's work that in a year a second edition should be demanded. This book contains most compactly and yet fully stated information on clinical diagnosis. Especially is it to be commended because of its clear description of laboratory technic, but the interpretation of clinical findings, which is the purpose of such a treatise, is quite as commendable. One hundred and thirty-seven pages are devoted to the blood, its morphology, bacteriology and parasitology. As many more to urine, its chemistry and microscopy. Succeeding sections are devoted to gastric contents, feces, sputum and buccal and nasal secretions; discharges from ears, eyes and genitalia; transudates, exudates, cerebrospinal and synovial fluids, milk and diseases of the skin. Much new material has been added in this second edition.
