The fact that Professor Wood's book has reached its tenth edition is sufficient evidence of its popularity and of the high appreciation of the physician and students who have depended upon it for their knowledge of therapeutics. It is to be regretted that this edition still retains the old system of weights and measures. The large number of new remedies that have been introduced since the last revision of the Pharmacopeia and the toxins and antitoxins have made it necessary that every work on therapeutics, aiming to be at all complete, should contain an account of them. These have been added in this edition, so that the work has been brought down to the latest date possible.
