This annual, so well known to the profession, is better than ever this year. The editors seem to have appreciated more fully than heretofore their duties, and the result is a magnificent production. We fail to appreciate the opposition which this work has received at the hands of the publishers of certain medical journals. It does a work which no medical journal can possibly do, and supplies the medical world with the résumé of practically all that is valuable, that has appeared during the preceding year. It does not usurp the place of the weekly medical journal, but rather makes this visitor the more welcome. We believe its tendency will be to cause physicians to extend their reading to subscribe for more periodicals. It is deserving of the highest success, and any medical man who has once subscribed for it, will be very loth to discontinue his subscription.
