[Book Reviews]


    THE author of this work has a most important aim in view, viz. to establish the connection between the weather and the prevalent diseases in Queensland, and expresses a hope that, in time, he will be able, if furnished with a forecast of the weather, to predict with certainty the diseases likely to predominate during the various seasons of the year, and thus to lay the foundations of a practical system of preventive medicine.

    Notes on some of the more Common Diseases in Queensland in relation to Atmospheric Conditions, 1887–91.

    By David Hardie, Hon. Physician Hospital for Sick Children, Lady Bowen Maternity Hospital, Brisbane. (Brisbane: Beal, 1893.)
