It is sufficient to draw the attention of readers interested in the progress of pharmacy and therapeutics to the appear- ance of a new edition (The Extra Pharmacopoeia of Martin- dale and 14'estcott. 20th ed., Vol. 1 II. K. Lewis, 27s. 6d.), of this classic work. To practising doctors, as well as to pharmacists, its value cannot be over-estimated. It embodies information nowhere else obtainable ; and it would be hardly too much to say that a doctor who has not posses' himself of a recent edition of the Extra Pharmacopoeia is not in a position to offer to 'his patients the maximum benclit$ made possible by modem research.
