Dr. Anders is to be congratulated on the fact that five editions of his text-book have been called for in less than four years. The reason for this popularity is that the book is written with a full grasp of the necessities of the general practitioner. The latter has found it to be just what he wants, not only in that it covers the various subjects fully in detail, but because the general plan is such that reference to any phase of the subject is easily and readily made. In this new edition the whole work has been brought fully into harmony with the present known facts and recent developments in medicine. Several chapters have been rewritten and some new subjects introduced.
