ABSTRACT

This book, which covers medicine in all its branches, is the combined work of twenty-three well-known English physicians and surgeons. The symptoms are arranged in alphabetical order, the symptom being named and followed by a discussion as to the possible diagnosis in the presence of the symptom discussed. Because of its size, it is impossible to review all of the various sections of the book critically. It is well printed on enameled paper of excellent quality. There are 306 good halftone illustrations and thirty-seven colored plates. The final 150 pages are devoted to an index in which main topics are distinguished from notes and mere mention of the subjects discussed. This index in itself is a thought producer; for example, a reference to the main heading is followed by an outline of the possible diagnosis attached to this symptom.
