Four new articles appear in this edition: on the galvanic current, on the electrical treatment of aneurysm, on the Roentgen rays, and on the treatment of cancer by cataphoresis of mercury. The book is a compilation of articles on electricity by various men, rather than a systematic work, and consequently contains much that is mere repetition. Many of the chapters are out of date.
