As the author says in his introduction, while many additions have been made to the book, there have been no actual changes in its general contour. It is the revision of a well-known work which has already received its share of favor with the profession. The author's views in regard to the at present much discussed question of infant feeding are stated by him in the beginning, that there will be no unanimity on the question as long as infants insist on being individuals, having their own special constitutional idiosyncrasies. The author acknowledges his indebtedness to the contributors to the Festschrift published in his honor between two and three years ago, than which he says he knows of no collection of an equal number of monographs on scientific and practical subjects of equal value connected with pediatrics.
