Notices of the Press of Previous American Editions,

From the Boston Medical and Surgical Journal. This book is a
model of its kind. It gives a concise and thorough review of the subject of
materia medica, just such an one as should be of most use to the physician in
practical work. The therapeutics is thoroughly modern, and quite as practical
as the conditions of a work upon therapeutics pure and simple allow.

From the New York Medical Record. This well-known and really
excellent work has been made more useful by the thorough revision of the latest
English edition which the American editor has given us.

From the New York Medical Journal. The well-deserved success
this book has had is not likely to suffer diminution from any fault of the fourth
American edition. Such revision as pharmacological progress has demanded
has been conscientiously done, and the work is an admirable and useful pre-
sentation of a none too easy subject. For these reasons the popularity of the
book with teachers is not to be wondered at.

From the Medical News. As a note-book to refresh the memory of
the student, and as a quick reference-book for the experienced physician, who
merely wishes a concise statement of some certain point, the book is admirable.
Evidently no pains have been spared to make it accurate, and its arrangement is
scientific. It is the best of its class in the market, and it has been made so in
no slight degree by the additions and emendations of the American editor.

From the Vermont Medical Monthly. As a condensed, yet complete
work, containing in small compass the essential details of the whole subject,
his book stands without an equal.

From the Southern Practitioner. A most excellent, comprehensive,
complete, yet condensed work, containing in small compass the common and
accepted facts essential to the student and medical practitioner. The brevity
of expression throughout the work is remarkable, yet it is so practical and clear
that the dull and monotonous subject of Materia Medica is really made attrac-
tive. The work of the American editor has been well and satisfactorily exe-
cuted, and the more recent remedial agents of even this go-ahead country have
not been overlooked.

From the Texas Courier- Record of Medicine. By the labor and
skill of the editor, the work has been thoroughly adapted for the use of Ameri-
can physicians. The editor's additions and corrections are copious and note-
worthy, and change the character of the work more or less completely, so far
as American readers are concerned. These additions are distinguished from
the text by the use of brackets. The book has thus been transformed into a
work of the highest practical value, almost every drug in use, even down to
the most recent, having received due attention. The best results of all the
more recent developments in Therapeutics have been incorporated, and Dr.
Wilcox's labors have been performed with excellent judgment and skill.

From the Cleveland Medical Gazette. The care with which Dr.
Wilcox has performed his work is conspicuous on every page, and it is evident
that no recent drug possessing any merit has escaped his eye. We believe, on
the whole, this is the best book on Materia Medica and Therapeutics to place
in the hands of students, and the practitioner will find it a most satisfactory
work for daily use.

From the Medical Age. It is among the very best of reference text-
books, equally available for the student or the experienced physician, and its
conciseness is certainly very far from being the least of its merits. Another
notable feature is that the volume abounds in italicized notes calling attention
to errors or misunderstandings which experience has shown to be likely to



arise in a work of this kind ; these notes constitute very important danger
signals.

From the Denver Medical Times. This is an excellent manual for sta-
dents particularly, being arranged systematically and showing, as well as the pres-
ent state of the science allows, the reasons for the administration of each certain
drug. The subject is presented in a terse, rational and perspicuous manner.

From the Pharmaceutical Era. We have taken considerable pains to
compare this book with the Pharmacopoeia, for we firmly believe that any work
to be used or studied as a text-book by the pharmacist or pharmacy student
should conform in its statements to those given by the official standard in
definition, description, solubilities, etc. And in this particular the editor is to
be congratulated, for he has painstakingly and satisfactorily done his work.
For study in the class-room or reference in the store, the book will certainly
be appreciated. We know of none better.

From the Virginia Medical Semi-Monthly. There is a conciseness
