16 PREFACE TO THE FIRST EDITION.
As will be observed by a careful perusal, compara-
tively few of the newer remedies are derived from the
vegetable kingdom. The greater number of them are
synthetic in character.
It is possible that many of these new drugs now in
vogue and claimed to be of value as therapeutic agents
will (as has been the fate of some already) on further

endeavor to continue my work of review, and propose
to revise this brochure as often as the progress of the
new era of scientific therapeutics shall demand it.

All just and unbiased criticism will be given due con-

newer medicaments shall be not only touched upon, but
also duly discussed.
