The author says in his preface, which is in other respects tolerably modest, that the reviewer who thinks that he may find enough in it to save himself the trouble of reading the book will be very much mistaken. This is a general truth— true of this work as of many others. In this third edition changes and alterations have been made, and the many additions include entirely new chapters on some subjects. In most respects the work is well brought up to date. The semipopular style is noticeable even more perhaps than in former editions. The author's practice of heading each chapter with a quotation, sometimes duly credited, is uncommon in scientific medicine. The work will undoubtedly hold its own among the popular treatises on this subject.
