Revision makes this book more than ever a practical and serviceable guide for the obstetric nurse. Some of the pictures seem to be unnecessary; for example, that showing the use of the stethoscope in listening for the fetal heartbeat. The misspelling in Figure 7 is amusing; evidently the engraver, who did not know medical terms, did the best he could in reproducing the copy for the lettering. An index and a glossary aid in making the book valuable.
