Vol. 1 opens very appropriately with some general therapeutic considerations embodying methods, dosage, state of the patient, and drug combinations by H. C. Wood, M.D. The next theme is that of prescription writing, and combination of drugs, by J. P. Remington, Ph.M. Electro-therapeutics is a well illustrated chapter by A. D. Rockwell, M.D. This is followed by an excellent chapter on Swedish Movements and Massage, by Benj. Lee, M.D., and so on as we look through the two portly volumes just issued. We find chapter after chapter on all subjects pertaining to the treatment of diseases and injuries. Each written by an acknowledged authority. An abstract of which, be it ever so meagre, would fail to do justice to many of the well written articles, making up this valuable system of practical therapeutics.
