THE BOOK OF PRESCRIPTIONS: containing Two Thousand, Nine Hundred Prescriptions, collected from the Practice of the most Eminent Physicians and Surgeons. By HENRY BEASLEY, Author of "The Medical Formulary," "The Druggists' Receipt-Book," &c. &c. In one volume, duodecimo. Price, $1 50.

The editor, carefully selecting from the mass of materials at his disposal, has compiled a volume, sufficiently comprehensive, and yet sufficiently portable, in which both physician and druggist, prescriber and compounder, may find, under the head of each remedy, the manner in which that remedy may be most effectively administered, or combined with other medicines in the treatment of various diseases. The alphabetical arrangement adopted renders this easy; and the value of the volume is still further enhanced by the short account given of each medicine, and the lists of doses of its several preparations. This is really a most useful and important publication, and, from the great aid which it is capable of affording in prescribing, it should be in the possession of every medical practitioner. Amongst other advantages is, that, by giving the prescriptions of some of the most able and successful practitioners of the day, it affords an insight into the methods of treatment pursued by them, and of the remedies which they chiefly employed in the treatment of different diseases. The volume is small, and its cost trifling.-Lancet.

BEASLEY'S FORMULARY.

(NEW EDITION.)

THE MEDICAL FORMULARY: comprising Standard and
Approved Formula for the Preparations and Compounds em-
ployed in Medical practice. By HENRY BEASLEY. Second
American, from the Sixth London, Edition. In one volume.
Price, $1 50.

The fact that Mr. Beasley's Formulary has reached a sixth edition, is a sufficient proof of the estimation in which it is held by the medical and pharmaceutical public. It is, in fact, a very comprehensive work, containing a great mass of information in a very small com pass. The arrangement is alphabetical, as being most convenient. It contains selections from the American, French, German, and other foreign Pharmacopoeias, in addition to the Formulæ from the three British ones. The work, however, is so well kuown, that it is unnecessary to do more than announce the present edition, and to state that the doses of the various medicines have now been added.—Medical Times and Gazette.

TO THE SIXTH EDITION.

THIS little work was originally intended as a counter companion to the Dispensing Chemist; and it was the compiler's aim to furnish, in the compass of one small volume, and under an alphabetical arrangement-as most convenient for reference-a comprehensive collection of formulæ required in the compounding of prescriptions. In addition to the formulæ and processes of the last editions of the three British Pharmacopoeias,—as well as many which have been successively rejected from previous ones, but which are still occasionally required,-it comprises a copious selection from the American, French, German, and other foreign pharmacopoeias; from the well-known Formularies of Magendie, Dunglison, Foy, Bouchardat, Swediaur, and others; from the pharmacopoeias of the principal hospitals of this and other countries; from the best systematic works on Medicine, Materia Medica, Surgery, and Pharmacy; from single treatises on particular remedies; and from the British and Foreign periodicals. Care has been taken to include the new remedies most recently introduced up to the date of publication.

At the suggestion of medical friends, the doses of the several preparations are now generally annexed; and other additions have been made to meet the wishes and requirements of the medical practitioner and student.
