Octavo. 650 Pages. Cloth, $4.50 ; Leather, $5.50. A treatise on Diseases of the Skin, with reference to Diagnosis and Treatment, luding an Analysis of 11,000 Consecutive Cases. Thoroughly illustrated by new and ndsome wood engravings, and several colored and steel plates prepared, under the rection of the author, from special drawings by Dr. John Wilson.


Special attention is given to the Differential Diagnosis of Skin Diseases and to the atment. There are over 150 prescriptions, which will serve as hints to the physician dealing with obstinate and chronic cases. There has been no complete treatise on Dermatology issued for several years ; Professor derson has, therefore, chosen an opportune time to publish his book.

ILLUSTRATING ONE OF THE DISEASES OF THE HAIR (See Fig. 6, page 7). For nearly twenty-five years Professor Anderson has been a general practitioner and a ospital physician, with unusual opportunities for the study of this class of diseases, though t a “specialist,” as the term is understood. His experience is, therefore, of great lue, and the physician will feel that, in consulting this work, he is reading the expeences of a man situated as himself—with the same difficulties of diagnosis and treatment, id who has surmounted them successfully. We believe this to be a valuable feature of le book that will be recognized at once; for it is undoubtedly a fact that a work like je present contains much practical information and many hints not to be found elsehere. Professor Anderson is particularly happy in illustrating the imporint relations subsisting between the general economy and its covering, and is ideas of pathology and therapeutics, including a consideration of all the general nd local manifestations of the common diseases of the economy which are manifested pon the surface, will find many appreciative readers. Diseases of the hair receive full systematic treatment.

"We welcome Dr. Anderson's work not only as a friend, but as a benefactor to the profession, because the author has ricken of mediæval shackles of insuperable nomenclature and made crooked ways straight in the diagnosis and treatment of lis hitherto but little understood class of diseases. The chapter on Eczema is, alone, worth the price of the book."- Nashville ledical News

The object held in view in the preparation of this Series was to make books that should be care practical, not burdened by useless theories and discussions, but containing all that is needed or nece the student and practitioner. No pains have been spared to bring them up to the times, and the price at which they have been published is an additional point in their favor.

With 692 Illustrations. THIRD AMERICAN, FROM THE SIXTH GERMAN EDITION. sext-Book of Human Physiology, including Histology and Microscopical Anatomy,

with special reference to the requirements of Practical Medicine. By Dr. L. LANDOIS, Professor of Physiology and Director of the Physiological Institute, University of Greifswald. Translated from the Fifth German Edition, with additions by WM. STIRLING, M.D., Sc.D., Brackenbury, Professor of Physiology and Histology in Owen's College and Victoria University, Manchester ; Examiner in the hors' School of Science, University of Oxford, England. Third Edition, revised and enlarged. 692 Illustrations. "A BRIDGE BETWEEN PHYSIOLOGY AND PRACTICAL MEDICINE.” .

One Volume. Royal Octavo. Cloth, $6.50; Leather, $7.50.

Tirom the Prefaces to the English Edition. The fact that Prof. Landois' book has passed through four large editions in the original since 1880, and Lt in barely six months' time a second edition of the English has been called for, shows that in some -cial way it has met a want. The characteristic which has thus commended the work will be found inly to lie in its eminent practicability; and it is this consideration which has induced me to undertake the k of putting it into English. Landois' work, in fact, sorms a Bridge between Physiology and the Practice

Medicine. It never loses sight of the fact that the student of to day is the practicing physician of morrow. In the same way, the work offers to the busy physician in practice a ready means of refreshing 5 mensory on the theoretical aspects of Medicine. He can pass backward from the examination of pathozical phenomena to the normal processes, and, in the study of these, find new indications and new lights

the appreciation and treatment of the cases under consideration. With this object in view, all the ethods of investigation which may, to advantage, be used by the practitioner, are carefully and fully

scribed. Many additions, and about one hundred illustrations, have been introduced into this second : aglish edition, and the whole work carefully revised.

PRESS NOTICES. “Most effectively aids the busy physician to trace from morbid phenomena back the course of divergence from althy physical operations, and to gather in this way new lights and novel indications for the COMPREHENSION AND TREATMENT the maladies with which he is called upon to cope."- American Journal of Medical Sciences:

“I know of no book which is its equal in the applications to the needs of clinical medicine."-Prof. Harrison Allen, late rofessor of Physiology, University of Pennsylvania.

“We have no hesitation in saying that this is the work to which the PRACTITIONER will turn whenever he desires light rown upon the phenomena of a COMPLICATED OR IMPORTANT Case."-Edinburgh Medical Journal.

“So great are the advantages offered by Prof. LANDOIS' Text-Book, from the exHAUSTIVE and EMINENTLY PRACTICAL anner in which the subject is treated, that it has passed through pour large editions in the same number of years. T. STIRLING's annotations have materially added to the value of the work. Admirably adapted for the PRACTITIONER. fith this Texe-book at command, no STUDENT COULD FAIL in his exAMINATION."The Lancet.

"One of the MoST PRACTICAL WORKS on Physiology ever written, forming a 'bridge between Physiology and Practical ledicine. . . . Its chief merits are its completeness and conciseness. . . . The additions by the Editor are able and judicious.

EXCELLENTLY CLEAR, ATTRACTive and suCCINCT.”- British Medical Journal. "The great subjects dealt with are treated in an admirably clear, terse, and happily illustrated manner."--Practitioner. “Unquestionably the most admirable exposition of the relations of Human Physiology to Practical Medicine ever laid efore English readers"-Students' Journal.

.“ As a work of reference, Landois and STIRLING's Treatise ought TO TAKE THE FOREMOST PLACE among the textooks in the English language. The wood-cuts are noticeable for their number and beauty.”-Glasgow Medical Journal.

.“ Landois' Physiology is, without question, the best text-book on the subject that has ever been written." -Nrw York Medical Record.

"The chapter on the Brain and Spinal Cord will be a most valuable one for the general reader, the translator's notes adding ot a little to its importance. The sections on Sight and Hearing are exhaustive. ... The Chemistry of the Urine is thoroughly onsidered. . . . In its present form, the value of the original has been greatly increased. . . The text is smooth, accurate, nd unusually fiee from Germanisms; in fact, it is good English."'-- New York Medical Journal.

It is not for the physiological student alone that Prof. Landois' book possesses great value, for IT HAS BEEN ADDRESSED : THE PRACTITIONER OF MEDICINE as well, who will find here a direct application of physiological to pathological processes."
