When the first edition of this book appeared we commended it as being a concise summary of obstetrical knowledge. The illustrations are good and the teachings fully abreast of the time. We note that the author lays less stress on antiseptic treatment of the cord than modern teachings would seem to indicate. With the exception of this slight omission there is nothing to criticize.
