This little book might well be described as an encyclopedic lexicon of modern medical terms, including all branches of medicine, words and terms not found in any but the most recent dictionaries. In current publications many terms and neologisms are employed long before they find their way into text-books, encyclopedias and dictionaries. An attempt is made to here give a list of the newer proprietaries, but this far from complete. The supposed formulæ are given in many instances. Much valuable information is given that is not easily found elsewhere, such as Schleich's formulæ, antivenin, etc.
