engravings on wood, and six colored plates Together with selections from the Test-types
of Jaeger and Snellen. In one large and very handsome octavo volume of nearly 800
pages ; cloth, $5 00 ; leather, $0 00. (Just Ready.)
The continned demand for this work, both in England and this country, is sufficient evidence
that the author has succeeded in his eflfort to supply within a reasonable compass n full practical
digest of ophthalmology in its most modern aspects, while the oall for repeated editions has en-
abled him in his revisions to maintain its position abreast of the most recent investigations and
improvements. In again reprinting it, every e£fort has been made to adapt it thoroughly to the
wants of the American practitioner. Such additions as seemed desirable have been introduced
by the editor, Dr. I. Minis Hays, and the number of illustrations has been largely increased. The
importance of test-types as an aid to diagnosis is so universally acknowledged at the present day
that it seemed essential to the completeness of the work that they should be added, and as the
author recommends the use of those both of Jaeger and of Snellen for different purposes, seleo*
tions have been made from each, so that the practitioner may have at command all the assist-
ance necessary. Although enlarged by one hundred pages, it has been retained at the former
very moderate price, rendering it one of the cheapest volumes before the profession.
A few notices of the previous edition are subjoined.
In this respect tbe work before us is of much more i fonnd difficult to tbe student, he has dwelt at length



service to the general practitioner than those heavy
compilations which, in giving every person's views,
too often neglect to specify those which are most in
accordance with ihe author's opinions, or in general
acceptance. We have no hesitation in recommending
this treatise, as, on the whole, of all Englibh works
on the subject, the one best adapted to tbe wants of
the general practitioner.— fidin^uror/t Med, Joumaly
March, 1870.

A treatise of rare merit. It Is practical, compre-
hensive, and yet concise. Upon those subjects usually



and entered into full explanation. After a careful
perusal of its contents, we can unhesitatingly com-
mend it to all who desire to consult a really good
work on opbhtalmlc science.— Xcavsni^rtA Mde. Her-
ald, Jan. 1870.

Without doubt, one of the best works upon the sub
ject which has ever been published ; it is complete un
the subject of which it treats, and is a necessary work
for every physician who attempts to treat diseases of
the ejo.-^Dominion Med. Journal, Sept. 1869.

This classical work has so long been recognised as a standard authority on its perplexiiig sub-

by John J. Rxese, M.D., Prof of Med. Jurisp. in the Univ. of Penn. In one large
octavo volume. Cloth, $5 00 ; leather, $6 00. {Now Ready.)

In preparing for the press this seveiUk American edition of the ** Manual of Medical Jurispru-
dence" the editor has, through the courtesy of Dr. Taylor, enjoyed the very great advantage of
consulting the sheets of the new edition of the author's larger work, " The Principles and Prae-
tice of Medical Jurisprudence," which is now ready for publication in London. This has enabled
him to introduce the author's latest views upon the topics discussed, which are believed to bring
the work fully up to the present time.

The notes of the former editor, Dr. Hartshorne, as also the numerous valuable references lo
American proctice and decisions by his successor, Mr. Penrose, have been retained, with but few
slight exceptions ; they will be found inclosed in brackets, distinguished by the letters (H.) and
(P.). The additions made by the present editor, from the material at his command, amount to
about one hundred pages; and his own notes are designated by the letter (R.).

Several subjects, not treated of in the former edition, have been noticed in the present one,
and the work, it is hoped, will be found to merit a continuance of the confidence which it hac to
long enjoyed as a standard authority.

ILLUSTRATIONS OF THE INFLUENCE OF THE MIND UPON

Imagination. In one handsome octavo volume of 416 pages, extra oloth, $3 25. {Now
Ready.)
The object of the author in this work has been to show not onlj the effect of the mind in caus-
ing and intensifying diseasCf but also its euratire influence, ond the use which may be made of
tbe imagination and the emotions as therapeutic agents. Scattered facts bearing upon this sub-
Ject have long been familiar to the profession, bat no attempt has hitherto been mude to collect
&nd systematize them so as to render them available to the practitioner, by establishing the seve-
ral phenomena upon a scientific basis. In the endeavor thus to convert to the use of legitimate
medicine the means which have been employed so successfully in many systems of quaokerj, the
author has produced a work of the highest freshness and interest as well as of permanent value.

INSANITY AND ITS TREATMENT: Lectures on the Treatment,

Medical and Legal, of Insane Patients. With a Summary of the Laws in force in the
United States on the Confinement of the Insane. By Isaac Rat, M. D. In one very
handsome octavo volvme of 471 pages : extra cloth, $3 25. (Just Issued.)
This volume is presented to meet the want, so frequently expressed, of a comprehensive trea-
tise, in moderate compass, on the pathology, diagnosis, and treatment of insanity. To render it of
more value to the practitioner in this country. Dr. Ray has added an appendix which affords in-
formation, not elsewhere to be found in so accessible a form, to physicians who may at any moment
be called upon to take action in relation to patients.

It satiBflen a want which must have been sorely
felt by the busy general praotltionert of this coaatry.
It takes the form of a manual of dinic&I description



of the varlouH forms of insanity, with a description
of the mode of examining persons snspected of in-
sanity. We call particular attention to this feature
of the book, as giving it a unique value to the gene-
ral practitioner. If we pass from theoretical conside-
rations to descriptions of the varieties of insanity as



actually seen in practice and the appropriate treat-
ment for them, we find in Dr. Blandford's work a
considerable advance over prevlouis writings on the
subject. His pictures of the various forms of mental
disease are so clear and good that no reader can fall
to be struck with their superiority to those given in
ordinary manuals In the English language or (so far
as our own reading extends) in any other.— Xondon
PraetUioner, Feb. 1871.

We know of no single work whioh oontains, in so
small a eoinpass, so much illustrative of the strangest

authority for each statement, showing vast research

The story was never told more ealmly or with
greater learning or wiser thought. We doubt, indeed,
if any other study of this Held can be compared with
tbls for clearneee, accuracy, and power. — CAica^o
EMimlnerj Dee. 1870.

Mr. Lea's latest work, ' * Studies in Church History,"
fully sustains the promise of (he first. It deals with
three subjects— the Temporal Power, Benefit of
Clergy, and Excommunication, the record of which
has a peculiar importance for the Bngllsh student, and
is a chapter on Ancient Law likely to be regarded as
fl.nal. We can hardly pass from our mention of such
works as thene— with whlsh that oa "SaeerdoCal
Celibacy" should be included— without noting the



literary phenomenon that the head of one of the first
American houses is also the writer of some of Its most
original books.— London Athenaunit Jan. 7, 1871.

Mr. Lea has done great honor to himMelf and this
eomntry by the admirable works be has written on
ecclesiologicaland cognate subjects. We have already
had occasion to commend his " Superutltlon and
Force" and his "History of Sacerdotal Celibacy."
The present volume is fully as admirable in its me-
thod of dealing with topics aod in the thoroughness—
a quality so frequently laoking in American authors—
with which they are Investigated.-/^. T. Joumalof
