MEN. Second Edition, Revised and Enlarged, with Six Lithographic
$2.25 The value and popularity of this book is proved by the rapid sale of the first edition, which was exhausted in less than a year from the time of its publication.

Third, It is concise, original, and illustrated by numerous cases from the author's own experience. His style is clear and the volume is the result of the author's large and accurate clinical observation recorded in a remarkable, perspicuous, and terse manner, and is conspicuous for the best qualities of a practical guide to the student and practitioner. — British Medical Journal.
