These lectures, delivered at the University College, London, and taken in shorthand for the Clinical Journal, are reproduced in this work. Its ready colloquial style and illustrative remarks on the cases make it almost as interesting as a novel. It is especially adapted to English laws and usages and the references, of course, are made to the English statutes and practices rather than to the American, but that will not necessarily seriously affect its value to American readers. A few things here and there, as might be expected, are superficially treated, and it would not be entirely safe, for example, to follow the author's distinction as regards poisonous and non-poisonous mushrooms. There may be other slight inaccuracies, but we believe they are rather few, and on the whole the book will be a safe guide. Insanity is treated rather sketchily and much dependence seems to be placed upon the illustrations
