This unique monograph is dedicated by Liepmann and Danelius to Prof. Hugo Sellheim on the occasion of his sixtieth birthday. Besides being an atlas of obstetric radiography, it contains a series of fetal reconstructions in various presentations and positions, which have been artistically and accurately drawn from tracings from the films. A print of each original film used in illustration is shown and on the page opposite is the reconstruction, with full explanatory captions in German, English and French. The roentgenograms are reproduced with unusual clarity. While mention is made in the text of the diagnosis of early pregnancy by utilizing pneumoperitoneum and combined uterosalpingography and pneumoperitoneum, the authors evidently have had no personal experience with this valuable diagnostic technic and therefore have devoted their efforts mainly to a study of the later period of pregnancy. Frequent reference is made by the author to the epoch-making work of Warnekros in
