Transactions of the Iowa State Medical Society. Vol. VII, 1886-1889.
This volume of Transactions covers the work done by the Society in four years. It comprises sixty-one papers, nearly all of which may be said to be rather meagre, as may be judged by the fact that they find plenty of room in a book of only 564 pages. The work accomplished is very good as far as it goes, but the Society evidently needs tonic treatment to prevent premature decay. From such a magnificent State as Iowa it is not too much to expect the very best of work.
