In compliance with the expressed wish of some of our readers, we shall give, from time to time, a short list of the most prominent and interesting books published, pertaining to medicine; also note a few of the more interesting essays published in the journals. We can give no more space than suffices to mention subject and author; hence, will attempt no review of their subject-matter. This is done to keep our readers acquainted, without trouble to themselves, with the current medical literature, and so facilitate their purchasing such works as they may desire.
