Dr. Foster's magnificent work is so well known that we feel that any words of praise we might give it would hardly enhance its already well-established reputation.
It gives us pleasure, however, to announce this new edition, which is not simply a reprint of the last, but embodies the latest additions to physiology.
We have always been disappointed, however, in the arrangement of the book, the chapter on Digestion being peculiarly involved, making it difficult to find what is wanted. This difficulty might have been partially overcome by a suitable index. This usually prominent feature of American medical books is here very deficient. The American editor would have done well if he had taken as his sole task the preparation of a complete index for the work.
