This favorite work needs no syndicate of professors to insure its sale at medical colleges. Although less than nine years elapsed between the date of the first edition and the date of the fifth, from which the present translation is made, the book has been kept carefully abreast of the progress of the times. The author himself has carefully revised his work four times. With the exception of the entire omission of the Roentgen ray, all the latest methods of diagnosis have been incorporated in this volume. This has been done purposely, as its distinguished author states that for purposes of internal medicine the application of the Roentgen ray is still in the beginning. It is quite possible that before another edition shall have been issued, its place in internal medicine will be more definitely fixed. In the meantime, this work remains, as before, one of the most valuable books
