Notwithstanding the many excellent works on medical jurisprudence, the author has long since satisfied himself from his long experience as a coroner's physician that there was need of a work of a different character, giving condensed information on the special subjects which it treats.
The work is divided into two parts. Part 1, toxicology, with sixteen chapters; Part 2, forensic medicine, twenty six chapters. There is an appendix of some fifty pages. The author is clear in his statements, precise, methodic, and has produced an excellent book. We commend it.
