This work is thoroughly modern in all respects. The author has given preference to modern orthography and terminology, and wherever dosage is stated has used the metric equivalents. It is, however, not a mere translation, but in all instances in which this would involve an important difference in quantity the exact decimal figures are given. Current medical literature has been utilized in this contribution.

The book covers infectious diseases and constitutional diseases; diseases of the blood and ductless glands; diseases of the respiratory system; diseases of the urinary system; diseases of the nervous system; diseases of muscles; the intoxications, and the animal parasitic diseases.

Special attention has been given to diagnosis; and the work is to be commended. An unusually full index completes the volume.
