rDHE Fourth Edition of D,r. Pereira’s Elements 
-*- of Materia Medica is now complete. The con¬ 
tents have not only undergone revision, but there 
lias been a re-arrangement of the subjects, so that 
they are now placed more in accordance with the 
original plan of the author. The second part of the 
second volume is increased by nearly one hundred 
pages of new matter. There are twenty new articles, 
an 1 fifteen additional illustrations. The improve¬ 
ments made by Dr. Carson, in the American edi¬ 
tion, have been adopted by the Editors, and 
the Pharmacopoeias of Norway and the United States 
have been laid under contribution for numerous 
medicinal preparations. To give some idea of the 
extent of the Elements of Materia Medica, it may 
be mentioned that the fourth edition comprises up¬ 
wards of two thousand six hundred pages, five 
hundred and eighty-six articles of Materia Medica, 
and four hundred and seventy-eight wood-engra¬ 
vings. 
1AACH of the three divisions of the work is furnished with a copious separate INDEX, so 
that every particular relating to any substance or agent used in Medicine may be instantly 
ascertained by any person able to read. Full and elaborate tables prefixed to each volume exhibit 
its contents in scientific order for the use of educated or professional readers. The following 
selections indicate inadequately the extent and variety of the subjects, and the general arrange¬ 
ment ; they convey no idea of the fullness and plainness with which each article is treated.
