Edited by HOBART AMORY HARE, M.D., Professor of Therapeutics and Materia Medica in the Jefferson Medical College of Philadelphia; Physician to the Jefferson Medical College Hospital. Vol. IV. With illustrations. LEA BROTHERS & Co. Philadelphia and New York. 1897.

Volume IV. of this System of Therapeutics appears some years after the publication of the first three volumes of the work, during which time great advances have been made in this department, rendering an additional volume necessary to embody the present views of the most experienced men in all branches of medicine. This volume is so arranged as to be regarded as a supplement to preceding volumes or as an entirely separate work. It will prove of exceedingly great value in elaborating the practice of the most eminent men in the profession in their favorite lines of therapeutics. The contributors have been carefully chosen by the editor with a view of equalizing the value of the various monographs. The names appended to the various sections are all well known. The subjects selected are all of such a character as to prove interesting to all. We take great pleasure in commending the work as one of the most universally valuable books recently issued from the medical press.
