This book, which is devoted to office gynecology, has nineteen chapters including those dealing with infections of the genitalia, malpositions of the uterus, abnormal uterine bleeding, endocrinology, sterility, habitual abortion, pregnancy, diseases of the breasts, backache, rheumatic-neuritic-neuralgic-vegetative symptom complex, the menopause, cosmetics and sexualia. Some of the chapters are disproportionately large. The one dealing with Trichomonas occupies forty pages, or one seventh of the book, whereas only eight pages are devoted to gonorrhea. There are only three illustrations in the entire book, two of which depict Trichomonas and the third shows the Knorr instrument, which is used for applying silver nitrate to the bladder in cases of urinary incontinence. The book is well written, but it loses a great deal of its value because of the almost complete lack of illustrations, which are essential for the instruction the author attempts to give.
