No well-stored English library should be without Woodville's Medical Botany, a woik of long-established reputation, and the best on a subject, which mast, more or less, be interesting to every man of inquiry. It contains accurate figures and descriptions of all the plants used in English medicine, and is of such nolhnrity with professional men, as to be almost a? essential to them as the Pharmacopoeia itself. Subsequent publications of a similar kind, though with Wood ville as their text-book, have fallen greatly short of the original, as well in comprehensiveness of plan, as in accuracy of delineation and correctness of colouring, It having long been a matter of regret that so excellent a work, from the want of a new edition, should remain so much behind the present pharmaceutical science, Sir William undertook to supply this defect, by adding a Supplementary Volume, containing all the new and acknowledged discoveries, and all the plants added to the Pharmacopoeias, since the publication of the work in 1H10. New plates have likewise been given for the Cinchonas, and other plants, which were not properly identified in the time of Wood ville; and new letterpress or errata fur such descriptions as were deficient or incorrect. All these alterations and additions have been given in the supplementary or fifth volume, preserving everything contained in the original work, inclusive even of the incorrect platea and letter-press, though duplicate, leaving it to the purchaser's option either to cancel or retain them as he pleases.
