Opinions of the Press.- "Dr Rokytansky's book is no more than it professes to be: it is morbid Anatomy in its densest and most compact form, scarcely ever alleviated by histories, cases orthypotheses. It is just such a work as might be expected from its author, who is said to have written in it the result of his experience gained in the careful examination of over 12,000 bodies, and who is possessed of a truly marvellous power of observing and amassing facts. In the course of our analysis we have said comparatively little of its merits, the best evidence of which is found in the length to which our abstracts have been carried without passing beyond the bounds of what is novel or important. Nor would this fault have been committed though much more had been borrowed, for no modern volume on morbid Anatomy contains half so many genuine facts as this; it is alone sufficient to place its author in the highest rank of European medical observers."- British and Foreign Medical Review, January, 1843.
Enchiridion Medicum, or the Practice of Medicine; the result of fifty years' experience, by C. W Hufeland, counsellor of state, physician in ordinary of the late King of Prussia, professor in the University of Berlin. From the sixth German edition: translated by C Bruchhausen, M. D. Revised by R. Nelson, M. D Second American Edition. 1844. Bound, $2 50.
Opinions.- The following lines from Dr. Manly, formerly President of the Medical Society of the State of New York, contain his opinion in a few words of the merits of the book:
I am happy to have the opportunity of recommending to the Medical profession the Manual of the Practice of Medicine, by Hufeland. It is not often that books of this character, on perusal, make good the claims which their titles assume, but this is a well-marked exception; its description of diseases, though concise, are comprehensive; its reasonings just and philosophical, and its practice, as a consequence, intelligible and rational. The character of the author and his experience of more than half a century, together with the unexampled popularity of the work in its original language, render, in my opinion, all individual recommendation superfluous. I hope that it may soon be found in the hands of every medical man, whether pupil or practitioner. James R. Manly, M. D.

Certificate of John F. Gray, M. D., formerly Resident Physician to the New-York Hospital, Lecturer on the Theory and Practice of Physic, Censor of the State and New-York Medical Societies, etc., etc.
I am very glad to find the press engaged in diffusing a knowledge of the German medical literature in this country. At the head of the German books of practice stands this book of the good Hufeland. Mr. Bruchhausen and Dr. Nelson have laboured with diligence and good faith in rendering the Enchiridion; and so far as I have had leisure to compare their work with the original, I find no error of magnitude. Another edition will, no doubt, be called for soon, and then the worthy American curators can dispense with the somewhat meagre characteristic given to it by their too close adherence to the letter of the author. I heartily wish success to the good enterprise.

New-York, September 8,1842.
The reputation of the venerable eclectic of Germany scarcely requires endorsement even on this side of the Atlantic. An independent and original thinker, Hufeland labored for the cause of medical science, and has acquired a universal renown, amply attested to by his "Journal of Practical Medicine," "Axt of Prolonging Life," "System of Practical Medicine," and numerous Essays, besides personal contributions of humane and necessary innovations in the treatment of "Inoculation," "Small Pox," and "Signs of Death." His last work, Enchiridion Medicum, concentrates the experience of his entire medical life, and fully maintains in its careful and concise description and diagnosis of diseases all the evidence of the discriminating intellect of the Patriarch of German medical literature.
A. Gerald Hull, M. D.
New-York, September 12,1842.
I have looked over the Enchiridion Medicum of Professor Hufeland. It is an excellent compendium of German Practice, and will be found a valuable vade mecum to the student and practitioner. It can profitably be perused, and ought to be in the hands of all physicians. The justly distinguished reputation of the author will make it a work generally sought for.
