This book is made up of those portions of the chapters of " Aitkens' Science and Practice of Medicine " which describe the treatment of diseases. It is arranged alphabetically according to the names of the diseases. A brief definition of each morbid affection is given before the treatment is detailed. The work from which this has been compiled is so well known and has been so thoroughly established as an authority, that comment upon its contents is unnecessary. The book may be found useful, as keys, dictionaries, and indexes are, but like them, cannot be considered a treatise upon the subject.
