This bulky comprehensive treatise is almost encyclopedic in its scope. It encompasses material assembled in teaching therapeutics to students at the Jefferson Medical College. The material is divided into four sections. The first consists of a brief outline of general therapeutic principles in which planning, prescription writing, dietary principles, nursing problems and the contents of the physician's bag are discussed in a concise and most practical manner. Section two deals with symptomatic therapy. In this section a symptom—such as, for example, vertigo—is briefly discussed and a list of causes given, followed by treatment. Instructive plates prepared by sketching essential information
