This little book is divided into three parts, the first of which relates to dosage and therapeutics, the second to the treatment of diseases, and the third to recipes. The first part is of considerable service in suggesting the dosage of various remedies in various conditions. The second part arranged alphabetically under the names of diseases, is quite routine and not very inspiring. The subject matter is decidedly too old for a modern book on pediatrics.
