A reprint of the famous exhortation to work, with some photographs of Osler. Does not deliver what is promised by the subtitle; offers only a gloss of 48 notes on Osler's text, which illuminates literary sources, biographic references, and other details but does not analyze the organization of the essay, the sequence of ideas, the characteristics of sentences, the vocabulary, and the other elements of rhetoric.
