Pharmacology comprises some broad conceptions and generalizations, and some detailed conclusions, of such great and practical importance that every student and practitioner of medicine should be absolutely familiar with them. It comprises also a large mass of minute details, idiich would constitute too great a tax on human memory, but which can not safely be neglected. It is the ambition of this book to present both types of information without confusion.
