No. 6. Diseases of Children

A Manual. By J; F. Goodhart, m.d., Phys. to the Evelina Hospital for Children; Asst. Phys. to Guy's Hospital, London. American Edition.

Containing many new Prescriptions, a list of over 50 Formulae, conforming to the U. S. Pharmacopoeia, and Directions for making Artificial Human Milk, for the Artificial Digestion of Milk, etc.

"The author has avoided the not uncommon error of writing a book on general medicine and labeling it ' Diseases of Children,' but has steadily kept in view the diseases which seemed to be incidental to childhood, or such points in disease as appear to be so peculiar to or pronounced in children as to justify insistence upon them. * * * A safe and reliable guide, and in many ways admirably adapted to the wants of the student and practitioner." - American Journal of Medical Science.

Price of each Book, Cloth, $3.00 ; Leather, $3.50.

No. 6. Goodhart and Starr : - Continued.

"Thoroughly individual, original and earnest, the work evidently of a close observer and an independent thinker, this book, though small, as a handbook or compendium is by no means made up of bare outlines or standard facts."-The Therapeutic Gazette.

"As it is said of some men, so it might be said of some books, that they are ' born to greatness.' This new volume has, we believe, a mission, particularly in the hands of the younger members of the profession. In these days of prolixity in medical literature, it is refreshing to meet with an author who knows both what to say and when he has said it. The work of Dr. Goodhart (admirably conformed, by Dr. Starr, to meet American requirements) is the nearest approach to clinical teaching without the actual presence of clinical material that we have yet seen." - New York Medical Record.
