In preparing a new edition of this work, well known to the specialist in America, the author adheres to his original purpose of offering to the practitioner and student a text essentially practical. Hence the clinical and practical characters of the book have been retained, as having proved in previous editions useful toward securing the object aimed at. Thus the various divisions of the subject have been arranged in a natural order, from a clinical point of view, first dealing with the history, then with the physical examination, then with diseases of the external genitalia, diseases of the vagina, of the uterus, etc. Numerous cases are detailed to illustrate points when emphasis is desired.

Many of the chapters have been rewritten in part, much new matter being added, and the entire work has undergone revision. A full description of Wertheim's radical hysterectomy for carcinoma of the uterus has been added
