The progress of chemistry at the present time is such that a revision of text-books is required every few years. This is not specially true of chemistry, but of all branches of science, and especially of medical science. This sixteenth edition of Attfield's well-known manual, therefore, meets a need and, as it is especially adapted to medical students, it should meet with all the favor that did the former edition. The revision has been thorough, and yet, by the omission of superfluous material, it is not more cumbersome, while fully up-to-date. The index is especially full, occupying over sixty pages, which fact greatly enhances its value for reference.
