This year-book is one of the best published in any language. The vast literature of the year has here been culled and condensed, and judicious criticisms written upon the topics included in the scope of the work. Those fortunate enough to have the last year's volume, will know better than any one else how to appreciate this one.
Dr. L. A. Duhring has been appointed to the department of dermatology, vice Dr. Hardaway, resigned. The editor-in-chief has not hesitated to pass his judgment on the value of most of the proposed discoveries and improvements noted in the volume, and in the main we see little to dissent from in them.
