It is timely that Dr. Vaughan, who is well known for his large book entitled "Practice of Allergy," which is intended for the medical practitioner, should also undertake to write a primer in simple language for the lay patient.
The work is divided into a number of chapters, with a summary and questions and answers at the end of each chapter, which makes the subject matter comprehensible. The illustrations are amusing, as a number of the well known cartoons of Webster have been introduced. An important part is the last chapter on general orders and directions to the patient, which contains much necessary information.
