This book is a German edition of Gentz's "Der vanligare Läkemedelsformerna" subjected to some alterations and made to conform to the German panel regulations and pharmacopeia. Prescription writing is clearly described and illustrated by numerous examples which demonstrate how practically all of the useful pharmaceutic preparations may be applied in practice. More than half of the book is taken up with worth while tables of dosages, solubilities, incompatibilities, explosive mixtures and so on; the list of antidotes, however, is not entirely modern.
The book is well printed and may be recommended to those interested in this phase of therapeutics.
