The second volume continues the subject of forensic medicine. The thanatologic division of the subject is completed by the consideration of death from wounds, electricity, suffocation, submersion, and the determination of survivorship. The biothanatologic division of the subject is taken up, including abortion and infanticide, the consideration of pregnancy, sexual incapacity, sexual crimes and railway injuries. This last title introduces a considerable treatise covering 215 pages, discussing this subject in all its relations. The same thoroughness of treatment marks this volume as that found in the first. The subject is fully illustrated by the use of drawings, of which three are colored plates, and by numerous illustrative cases.
