In this volume the subject of forensic medicine is continued, and the contents are as follows: 1, "Vision and Audition in their Medico-legal Relations," by J. H. Woodward, M.D.; 2, " Medico-legal Aspect of Insurance," by D. Murray, Esq., and G. J. Edwards, Esq.; 3, "Insanity in its Relations to Medical Jurisprudence," by E. D. Fisher, M.D.; 4, " Mental Unsoundness in its Legal Relations," by T. C. Becker, Esq.; 5, "Care and Custody of Incompetent Persons," by Goodwin Brown, Esq.; 6, table of cases cited in the volume.
The topics, as will be seen by the synopsis, are important to physicians in their capacity as experts, to alienists, lawyers and as well to practicing physicians. The statutory requirements of all the States of the Union are given in regard to the commitment of the insane, and to their care and custody. This volume is a worthy companion to its excellent predecessors.
