Special emphasis is given in this work to diagnosis and treatment. In the preface the author expresses the view that this is what the practitioner especially desires, and this desire he has undertaken to satisfy. Examination shows that this part of the work has been well done. Still it can not be said that other subjects have been neglected, and the book appears to be well up to date. The therapeutic recommendations are mostly illustrated by official drugs, and where proprietaries are mentioned the systematic chemical name is usually given. A cursory examination shows an apparently unnecessary specification of certain proprietary intestinal antiseptics and hematinics, which are evidently the author's favorites.
