Associate Editor of the "Annual of the Universal Medical Sciences;" Visiting Physician of the Home for the Aged, Germantown, Philadelphia; Late House-Surgeon Charity Hospital, New York.

More than 1800 Formulæ from Several Hundred Well-Known Authorities.

With an APPENDIX containing a Posological Table, the newer remedies included; Important Incompatibles Tables on Dentition and the Pulse; Table of Drops in a Fluidrachm and Doses of Laudanum graduated for age; Formulæ and Doses of Hypoderinic Medication, including the newer remedies; Uses of the Hypodermic Syringe; Formula and Doses for Inhalations, Nasal Douches, Gargles, and Eye-washes; Formulæ for Suppositories; Use of the Thermometer in Disease; Poisons, Antidotes, and Treatment; Directions for Post-Mortem and Medico-Legal Examinations; Treatment of Asphyxia, Sun-stroke, etc.; Anti-emetic Remedies and Disinfectants; Obstetrical Table; Directions for Ligation of Arteries; Urinary Analysis; Table of Eruptive Fevers: Motor Points for Electrical Treatment, etc., etc.

This work, the best and most complete of its kind, contains about 275 printed pages, besides extra blank leaves. Elegantly printed, with red lines, edges, and borders; with illustrations. Bound in leather, with side flap. It contains more than 1800 Formulæ, exclusive of the large amount of other very valuable matter.

Price, Post-paid, in the United States and Canada, $2.00, net; Great Britain, 8s. 6d.; France, 12 fr. 40.



1. Because it is a handy book of reference, replete with the choicest formulæ (over 1800 in number) of more than six hundred of the most prominent classical writers and modern practitioners.

2. Because the remedies given are not only those whose efficiency has stood the test of time, but also the newest and latest discoveries in pharmacy and medical science, as prescribed and used by the best- * known American and foreign modern authorities.

3. Because it contains the latest, largest (66 formula) and most complete collection of hypodermic formulæ (including the latest new remedies) ever published, with doses and directions for their use in over fifty different diseases and diseased conditions.

4. Because its appendix is brimful of information, invaluable in office work, emergency cases, and the daily routine of practice.

5. Because it is a reliable friend to consult when, in a perplexing or obstinate case, the usual line of treatment is of no avail. (A hint or a help from the best authorities, as to choice of remedies, correct dosage, and the eligible, elegant, and most palatable mode of exhibition of the same.)

6. Because it is compact, elegantly printed and bound, well illustrated, and of convenient size and shape for the pocket.

7. Because the alphabetical arrangement of the diseases and a thumb-letter index render reference rapid and easy.

8. Because blank leaves, judiciously distributed throughout the book, afford a place to record and index favorite formulæ.

9. Because, as a student, he needs it for study, collateral reading, and for recording the favorite prescriptions of his professors, in lecture and clinic; as a recent graduate, he needs it as a reference hand-book for daily use in prescribing (gargles, nasal douches, inhalations, eye-washes, suppositories, incompatibles, poisons, etc.); as an old practitioner, he needs it to refresh his memory on old remedies and combinations, and for information concerning newer remedies and more modern approved plans of treatment. 10. Because no live, progressive medical man can afford to be without it.

[blocks in formation]

A very handy and valuable book of formule for the physician's pocket.-St. Louis Medical and Surg. Journal. This little pocket-book contains an immense number of prescriptions taken from high authorities in this and other countries.-Northwestern Lancet.

This one is the most complete as well as the most conveniently arranged of any that have come under our attention. The diseases are enumerated in alphabetical erder, and for each the latest and most approved remedies from the ablest authorities are prescribed. The book is indexed entirely through after the order of the first pages of a ledger, the index letter being printed on morocco leather and thereby made very durable.-Pacific Medical Journal.

It is a book desirable for the old practitioner and for his younger brothers as well.-St. Joseph Medical Herald.


As long as "combinations" are sought such a book will be of value, especially to those who cannot spare the time required to learn enough of incompatibilities before commencing practice to avoid writing incompatible and dangerous prescriptions. The constant use of such a book by such prescribers would save the pharmacist much anxiety. The Druggists' Circular.

In judicious selection, in accurate nomenclature. in arrangement, and in style it leaves nothing to be desired. The editor and the publisher are to be congratulated on the production of the very best book of its class.-Pittsburgh Medical Review.

One must see it to realize how much information can be got into a work of so little bulk.-Canada Medical Record.

To the young physician just starting out in practice this little book will prove an acceptable companion.Omaha Clinic.

The want of to-day is crystallized knowledge. This neat little volume contains in it the most accessible form. It is bound in morocco in pocket form, with alphabetical divisions of diseases. so that it is possible to turn instantly to the remedy, whatever may be the disorder or wherever the patient may be situated. To the physician We it is invaluable, and others should not be without it. heartily commend the work to our readers.-Minnesota Medica! Journal.

-No. 3.

Synopsis of Human Anatomy:

Being a Complete Compend of Anatomy, including the
Anatomy of the Viscera, and Numerous Tables.



Instructor in Orthopedic Surgery and Assistant Demonstrator of Surgery, University of Pennsylvania; Attending Orthopedic Surgeon, Out-Patient Department, University Hospital, etc.


12mo. HANDSOMELY BOUND IN DARK-BLUE CLOTH. Price, Post-paid, in the United States and Canada, 81.40, net; Great Britain, 6s. 6d.; France, 9 fr. 25.

While the author has prepared this work especially for students, sufficient descriptive matter has been added to render it extremely valuable to the busy practitioner, particularly the sections on the Viscera, Special Senses, and Surgical Anatomy.



The work includes a complete account of Osteology, Articulations and Ligaments, Muscles, Fascias, Vascular and Nervous Systems, Alimentary, Vocal, and Respiratory and Genito-Urinary Apparatuses, the Organs of Special 3-Sense, and Surgical Anatomy.

In addition to a most carefully and accurately prepared text, wherever possible, the value of the work has been enhanced by tables to facilitate and minimize the labor of students in acquiring a thorough knowledge of this important subject. The section on the teeth has also been especially prepared to meet the requirements of students of Dentistry.

In its preparation, Gray's Anatomy [last edition], edited by Keen, being the anatomical work most used, has been taken as the standard.


Anatomy is a theme that allows such concentration better than most medical subjects, and, as the accuracy of this little book is beyond question, its value is assured. As a companion to the dissecting-table, and a convenient reference for the practitioner, it has a definite field of usefulness.Pittsburgh Medical Review.

This is a very carefully prepared compend of a..atomy, and will be useful to students for college or hospital examination. There are some excellent tables in the work, particularly the one showing the origin, course, distribution, and functions of the cranial nerves.-Medical Record.

Dr. Young has compiled a very useful book. We are not inclined to approve of compends as a general rule, but it certainly serves a good purpose to have the subject of anatomy presented in a compact, reliable way, and in a book easily carried to the dissecting-room. This the author has done. The book is well printed, and the illustrations well selected. If a student can indulge in more than one work on anatomy,-for, of course, he must have a general treatise on the subject,-he can hardly do better than to purchase this compend It will save the larger work, and can always be with him during the hours of dissection.-Buffalo Medical and Surgical Journal.


Medical Publisher, Philadelphia, Pa., U.S.A.)

Excellent tables have been arranged, which tersely and clearly present important anatomical facts, and the book will be found very convenient for ready reference.-Columbus Medical Journal.

The book is much more satisfactory than the "remembrances" in vogue, and yet is not too cumbersome to be carried around and read at odd moments-a property which the student will readily appreciate-Weekly Medical Review.

If a synopsis of human anatomy may serve a purpose, and we believe it does, it is very important that the synopsis should be a good one. In this respect the above work may be recommended as a reliable guide. Dr. Young has shown excellent judgment in his selection of illustrations, in the numerous tables, and in the classification of the various subjects -Therapeutic Gazette.

Every unnecessary word has been excluded, out of regard to the very limited time at the medical student's disposal. It is also good as a reference book, as it presents the facts about which he wishes to refresh his memory in the briefest manner consistent with clearness. - New York Medical Journal.

It is certainly concise and accurate, and should be in the hands of every student and practitioner.The Medical Brief.

We venture to say that all who saw the ANNUAL as it appeared in 1888 were on the lookout for its reappearance this (1889) year; but there are many whose knowledge of this magnificent undertaking will date with this present issue, and to those a mere examination of the work will suffice to show that it fills a legitimate place in the evolution of knowledge, for it does what no single individual is capable of doing.

These volumes make readily available to the busy practitioner the best fruits of medical progress for the year, selected by able editors from the current literature of the world; such a work cannot be overlooked by anyone who would keep abreast of the times. With so much that is worthy of notice incorporated in one work, and each department written up with a minuteness and thoroughness appreciated particularly by the specialist, it would avail nothing to cite particular instances of progress. Let it be sufficient to say, however, that while formerly there was a possible excuse for not having the latest information on matters pertaining to the medical sciences, there can no longer be such an excuse while the ANNUAL is published.-Journal of the American Medical Association.

We have before us the second issue of this ANNUAL, and it is not speaking too strongly when we say that the series of five volumes of which it consists forms a most important and valuable addition to medical literature.

Great discretion and knowledge of the subjects treated of are required at the hands of those who have taken charge of the various sections, and the manner in which the gentlemen who were chosen to fill the important posts of sub-editors have acquitted themselves fully justifies the choice made. We know of no branch of the profession to which this ANNUAL could fail to be useful. Dr. Sajous deserves the thanks of the whole profession for his successful attempt to facilitate the advance of medical literature and practice.-London Lancet.

This very valuable yearly report of the progress of medicine and its collateral sciences throughout the world is a work of very great magnitude and high importance. It is edited by Dr. C. E. Sajous, assisted, it is stated, by seventy associate editors, whose names are given, making up a learned and most weighty list. Their joint labors have combined to produce a series of volumes in which the current progress throughout the world, in respect to all the branches of medical science, is very adequately represented. The general arrangements of the book are ingenious and complete, having regard to thoroughness and to facility of bibliographical reference.-British Medical Journal.

ANNUAL, 1891.

The editor and publishers of the ANNUAL OF THE UNIVERSAL MEDICAL SCIENCES take this opportunity to thank its numerous friends and patrons for the liberal support accorded it in the past, and to announce its publication, as usual, in 1891. Recording, as it does, the progress of the world in medicine and surgery, its motto continues to be, as in the past," Improvement," and its friends may rest assured that no effort will be spared, not only to maintain, but to surpass, the high standard of excellence already attained.

The Subscription Price will be the same as last year's issue and the issues of 1889 and 1888.
