T. ROBERTS, M.D., F.R.C.P., Professor of Materia Medica and Therapeutics at University Hospital, Physician to Univc-sity College Hospital, etc. Seventh Edition. Revised and Enlarged. One vo.me, 8vo., with numerous Illustrations.

Cloth Binding, $5.50; Leather, $6.50 The present edition has been fully revised throughout, and in some parts rewritten or rearranged. While an endeavor has been made to bring every subject up to date in all its aspects, special attention has been given to the questions of treatment, with the view of bringing into notice important therapeutic agents or methods which have been recently introduced.

The unexceptional large and rapid sale of this book, and the universal commendation it has received from the profession, seems to be a sufficient guarantee of its merit as a Text-book. The publishers are in receipt of numerous letters from professors in the medical schools, speaking favorably of it, and below they give a few extracts from the medical press, American and English, attesting its superiority and value to both student and practitioner. The present edi. tion has been thoroughly revised and much of it re-written.

The best Text-book for students in the English language. We know of no work in the English language, or in any other, which competes with this one.”Edinburgh Medical Journal.

“Dr. Roberts' book is admirably fitted to supply the want of a good Handbook, so much felt by every medical student."-Student's Journal and Hospital Gazette.

“There are great excellencies in this book, which will make it a favorite with the student." - Richmond and Louisville Journal.

,“We heartily recommend it to students, teachers, and practitioners.”—Boston Medical and Surgical Journal.

“ It is unsurpassed by any work that has fallen into our hands as a compendium for students.” The Clinic,

“We particularly commend it to students about to enter upon the practice of their profession." -St. Louis Medical and Surgical Journal. .“ If there is a book in the whole of medical literature in which so much is said in so few words, it has never come within our reach.”—Chicago Medical Journal,

It is based on laborious researches into the pathological and clinical records of Guy's Hospital, London, during the twenty years in which the author has held office there as Medical Registrar, as Pathologist, and as Physician. Familiar beyond most, if not all, of his contemporaries, with modern medical literature, a diliger.: reader of · French and German periodicals, Dr. Fagge, with his remarkably retentive memory and methodical habits, was able to bring to his work of collection and criticism almost unequaled opportunities of extensive experience in the wards and dead house. The result is that which will probably be admitted to be a fuller, more original, and more elaborate textbook on medicine than has yet appeared. It is the first of importance emanating from Guy's Hospital, and the only two-volume work on the Practice of Medicine that has been issued for a number of years. Several subjects, such as Syphilis, that are usually omitted or but slightly spoken of in a general work of this character, receive full attention.

Dr. Walter Moxon, one of Dr. Fagge's contemporaries, and a great personal friend, writes of him, in a recent number of the London Lancet :

“Fagge was, to my mind, the type of true medical greatness. I believe he was capable of any kind of excellence. His greatness as a physician became evident to observers of character very soon after his brilliass student career had placed him on the staff of Guy's Hospital; he did not merely group already known facts, but he found new facts. Former volumes of Guy's Hospital Reports contain ample and most valuable proof of his greatness as a physician. His power of observation was sustained by immense memory, and brought into action by vivid and constant suggestiveness of intelligence. He was a physician by grace of nature, and being gifted with a quickness of perception, a genius for clinical facts and a patience in observation, he was at once recognized as a successtul practitioner and a leading figure in the hospital and among the profession,

“A true friend, guide and helper."- London Lancet.

A SYSTEMATIC TREATISE. By William R. Gowers, M.D., Professor Clinical

Medicine, University College, London ; Physician to University College Hospital and to the National Hospital for Paralyzed and Epileptic, etc.

Published by special arrangement with the author, and containing all the material in the two-volume English edition, with some corrections and additions. This is probably the most exhaustive book ever published on Nervous Diseases, and is the only late systematic treatise before the profession. The author's breadth of scope, systematic and interesting style, combine to make his work one of the most useful that has been published in any branch of medicine.

“The work, therefore, while serving to initiate the general reader in the elements of that science, ranks higher than a mere text book on the subject. The author's object has been, in our opinion, skillfully and successfully carried out, and a perusal and study of this will place the student and practitioner in possession of all the leading and essential facts necessary to investigate and treat diseases of the nervous system according to the most recent improvements of our knowledge at the present day."-British Medical Journal.

"It may be said, without reserve, that this work is the most clear, concise and complete text-book upon diseases of the nervous system in any language. And when the large number of such works which has appeared in Ger. many, France and England within the past ten years is considered, this implies high praise."-American Journal Medical Science.

" It would be invidious to praise one part more than another, where all is so good. Brevity and conciseness, combined with completeness and the most absolute clearness, are the characteristics of the work. Taken as a whole, it promises to be the most useful work on diseases of the nervous system which we possess.”—Dublin Journal of Medical Sciences.

The student and practitioner will find in it a true friend, guide and helper in his studies of the diseases of the nervous system. It is a most complete manual, presenting a thor qugh reflex of the present state of knowledge of the diseases of the nervous system. The care and thought that have been bestowed on its production are evident on every page. In the presence of such ability, learning and originality, criticism can only take a favorable direction. The style and manner are accurate, studied and adequate-never diffuse. The illustrations call for special notice. They are numerous, new and original. No better manual on nervous diseases has beer presented to the medical profession.”—London Lancet.

“From a small beginning a great work has gradually been evolved. Less than ten years ago Gowers put out a very modest little book on the ‘ Diagnosis of Diseases of the Spinal Cord,' which was soon followed by an equally modest treatise on . Diseases of the Brain.' Two years ago the first half of this manual appeared, com. prising Diseases of the Spinal Cord and Nerves, and now this manual of Diseases of the entire Nervous System is placed before us. Gowers' manual is herewith recommended to the general and to the special student. It is not too detailed for the former, while for the specialist it is explicit enough as a first-class book of reference. It is, on the whole, an admirable treatise."- Journal of Nervous and Mental Diseases, New York.

The contents is so vast as to make it impossible, in a review, to enumerate the subjects handled by the author, far less to attempt an analysis and discussion of the views held by him on the numerous problems with which he has to deal. We shall limit ourselves, therefore, almost entirely to a statement of the leading features of this manual, that characterize it as one of the very best published in any language. • . What we admire, first, is the clearness of thought and language in the exposition, even in the most difficule portions of the subject. It is not every one who, being a master, is at the same time a skillful expounder, and knows how to elucidate, whilst condensing, his theme. Secondly, we find the evidence on every page of the book of the author's individual familiarity with the topics he is discussing. • Finally, we note the thorough mas. tery of the author of the most recent researches." - Borin,
