This new edition of Gould's Medical Dictionary requires no introduction, for more than 800,000 copies of its predecessors in their various forms have been sold. When the "Pocket Medical Dictionary" came out in 1892 it contained 12,000 defined words. The edition immediately preceding the one now under review contained over 83,000 words and to that compilation many new terms have been added in the present revision. Certain omissions in the preceding edition, to which attention was called in a review in the ANNALS at that time, have been remedied, although it is not clear why 'blastophthoria', thus introduced, is capitalized.
