We have heretofore mentioned in terms of praise the appearance of successive editions of this estimable volume. The present edition has had about forty pages of new matter added, in which is an account of Professor Oliver's tintometer and hemoglobinometer, new matter on the primary anemias and on leukemias, also a description of Muller's "blood dust," new observations on poisoning by alcohol, opium, corrosives and ptomains, on aneurysms, on paroxysmal hemoglobinemia and on cretinism. The general plan of the book remains the same as heretofore. It is indispensable for practitioners who desire to keep abreast of the newer methods of clinical diagnosis, and is wholly a credit to American medical literature.
