The previous editions of this dictionary have been reviewed in these columns. The present edition provides good definitions of many new words. It is edited with a view to conformance with the usage of the press of the American Medical Association. It is a helpful book because of the tables and the long lists of signs, symptoms, dosages, tests, laboratory methods, operations and similar topics. A distinctive feature of this revision is the inclusion of 279 portraits of men whose names are eponyms, together with exceedingly brief biographic sketches of these noted contributors to both the knowledge and the language of medicine.
