A thorough revision and rechecking of the whole subject matter has been made and a number of new words and some new tables have been added. The Pocket Gould contains the medical words in current use by physicians, lecturers, writers, nurses, and related professions. It gives brief but intelligible definitions and the pronunciation of each term. It includes tables of reference matter, a physician’s dose-list, and veterinary dose-list, based upon the latest U. S. Pharmacopoeia. The reference value of many tables included in this book is apparent at a glance. If the name of a nerve is unknown, it can be found by reference to a functional index, or its point of origin, distribution, or branches, etc. Tables of muscles, bones, arteries, bacteria, phobias (about 90 tables in all) have been prepared for the work.
