It has been only two or three years since we noticed the last prior edition of this well-known handbook, which should really be called Halliburton's Physiology. This seventeenth edition has been thoroughly revised, and although it only exceeds the former one by fifteen pages, which are due largely to increased illustrations, sufficient unnecessary typography has been excised to leave a considerable amount of space for new matter, bringing the work as fairly up to date as can be reasonably expected. Any work on physiology rapidly changes in details; the science is a progressive one; hence, the necessity of frequent new editions. The book will undoubtedly retain the favor which it has so long held in professional public opinion.
