ROBERTSON'S (ARCHIBALD, M.D.) CONVERSATIONS on ANATOMY, PHYSIOLOGY, and SURGERY, in a neat, closely-printed pocket volume of 460 pages, boards, price 6s.

“This little volume contains a most excellent summary of what must form to the medical student the foundation of his know. ledge. The anatomical descriptions are full without being prolix, and concise without being defective or obscure. As was to be "expected, the physiological notices are but short, but they serve to pass before the student a detail of the leading facts on each particular point, and to show him the scope of what he either has studied, or is about to study elsewhere. The same may be said with regard to pathology, and especially the pathology of surgical diseases. Even to the more advanced student or practitioner, this little work will be found to be of considerable use. From the manner in which it is arranged, an immediate reference can be had to its pages, for an answer on any topic within the range of the subjects on which it professes to treat, with much more certainty of concise and exact information, than is to be expected or can possibly be obtained from more bulky and seemingly more important works."-Scots Times.

*** This Work will be published in Parts, the First Day of every alternate Month. Each Part will contain Eight Engravings, Four being large Plates, and the remainder spirited Vignettes of appropriate Subjects, designed by Mr LANDSEER.

The Engravings will be accompanied by interesting Descriptions and Notices of the various animals pourtrayed; and the whole Work will be got up in the best manner.

"These are Characteristic Sketches of Animals,' in the true sense of the term; and they are admirable for truth of delineation and a feeling for nature. The Etchings are remarkable for force, spirit, and effect; the furs and horns of the Animals are made out with great skill; and the introduction of appropriate backgrounds gives additional character to the plates. The most striking specimens in the parts before us are, the Bison, Thibet Dog, Musk Ox, and Elk. They are principally Portraits of Living Animals, some of them in the Jardin du Roi, at Paris, and others in the Zoological Gardens. A brief and lively account of the animal accompanies each Plate, with a Vignette pourtraying some scene or incident in which the subject of the description is introduced. The Work is handsomely got up, and, as a series of graphic illustrations of Zoology, must be valuable to the naturalist, and cannot fail of becoming popular. The design of the Work and its execution are excellent, and worthy of Mr Thomas Landscer's high reputation as a draftsman and engraver of Animals."-Spectator.
