Professor Jardine's book differs from most other books on obstetrics in that a considerable part of the space is given to the relation of cases illustrative of nearly every complication of pregnancy, labor and the puerperium. The term "clinical obstetrics" is therefore appropriate. The descriptions of the normal and pathologic conditions are nevertheless clear and fairly complete although sometimes brief while the symptoms, diagnosis and treatment are sufficiently given and make the book a satisfactory text-book for students. In this edition considerable new matter has been added, especially on the subject of neuritis, pyelitis, acute yellow atrophy of the liver, eclampsia, etc., as well as the reports of fifty new cases. There are now thirty-two cases of eclampsia reported, and a number of rare complications. The illustrations are well selected and well made.
