The seven chapters of this valuable little book are devoted to: General Considerations with regard to Gout; Sources and Places of Origin of Uric Acid in the System; Theories as to the Nature of Gout; Causes of Gout; Irregular Manifestations of Gout-Visceral and Cutaneous Affections; Hepatic and Renal Disorders connected with Gout; and the Treatment of Gout and of various Disorders connected with it. Of these chapters no one is more interesting or useful than that on the irregular manifestations of gout, to which too little study has been given. If anything, it could be wished that this chapter was longer.
This book is a comprehensive exposition of the subject, well written, and the reader is at all times convinced that it was written because the author had something to say. The chapter on treatment is of great value, and he must be unusually well informed who can learn nothing
