This last edition of Bartholow's famous work has assumed imposing proportions, having become a book of over 500 pages. And as is customary with the works of this author, no useless material encumbers its pages.
The book opens with an accurate and instructive description of the technique of the method, and follows with a full description of probably all drugs that can be used subcutaneously. It must not be supposed that it is limited to the dosage and preparation of the materials to be used, but each remedy is very fully discussed, and its therapy clearly expressed. The section upon the "Digitalis Group" is a masterly effort. It includes a description of the physiological effects, and the therapy of digitalis, sparteine, convallaria, strophanthin, adonidin, adonin and blattic acid, as well as a critical inquiry as to the particular uses of each, and their relative merits in different conditions.
