A PRACTICAL TREATISE ON MEDICAL DIAGNOSIS, for Students and Physi

cians. By John H. MUSSER, M.D., Assistant Professor of Clinical Medicine in the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia; President of the Pathological Society of Philadelphia, etc., etc. Octavo, 873 pages, 162 engravings and two colored plates. Cloth, $5.00; leather, $6.00. LEA BROTHERS & Co., Philadelphia. 1894.

The subject of diagnosis can be said to be scarcely second in importance to treatment, since the successful management of a disease necessarily depends upon its prompt discrimination. This obvious fact is reflected in the increased attention now paid to diagnosis in the c-llege curricula. Modern instruments, new methods of thought and new collateral sciences, such as acteriology, have placed the determination of disease upon a basis of scientific certainty, have secured for it an honored place among the medical sciences, and have created a rich and growing literature. Among the many works in the field, Musser's will take a foremost place. The author's rich experience, both as a physician and teacher, has enabled him to select such knowl. edge as is essential to a thorough medical education and to subsequent successful practice, and to present it clearly and attractively. The work is richly illustrated and is assured of a most favorable reception, both as a text-book and as a work of reference.

It will prove a valuable aid to the student, and at the same time furnish the practitioner with a reliable guide to diagnosis for use in his daily work. We find contained in the work a study of the objective phenomena or signs of disease, the subjective phenomena or symptoms, and the methods employed for their determination. Special attention has been paid to research for objective phenomena appearing in physical, chemical and biological changes in the tissues and secretions. The Symptomatology of Morbid Processes and Bacteriological Diagnosis are prominent features.
