Graves' revised textbook reveals, once more, the untiring energy and painstaking work of this author. The revision is thorough and excellent. This edition presents many changes. Genital physiology is offered in a more attractive manner. The subject of endocrinology has been revised and improved. A chapter on endometriosis has been added. The subject of cancer of the uterus is discussed vigorously and well. Special methods of treatment of cervical cancer are discussed quite comprehensively. Subjects of especial interest include a revised discussion of the subject of sterility. Newly presented material includes diathermy and the sedimentation test. Illustrations are numerous and good. Many are by the author. One possible adverse criticism might be offered: the book is perhaps too lengthy and too comprehensive for ideal use as an undergraduate students' textbook.
