The increase of material has necessitated the publication of the fifteenth edition of the Extra Pharmacopeia in two volumes. Volume I contains a description of chemical and therapeutic properties of those extrapharmacopeial chemicals and drugs which have attracted particular attention in the medical and scientific world, while Volume II comprises analytical work, a large amount of which has been carried out inthe laboratory of one of the authors. Volume I still contains about fifty pages more than the entire fourteenth edition and Volume II contains 370 pages. The work has been carefully revised with the excision of obsolete matter.
