This is one of the best manuals of gynecology in the English language; concise, clear and complete. This edition is largely re-written, re-arranged and newly illustrated. There is a large increase in matter and in the illustrations, and many additions have been made in the pathologic and surgical portions. The chapters on diseases of the mammary gland have been omitted, and new chapters on uterine reflexes, sutures and ligatures, surgical fibromata, affections of the Fallopian tubes, tubal pregnancy and ovarian affections, have been added. The author is a man of positive convictions, and he does not hesitate to express his views frankly. His chapter on massage is a refreshing one in these days of namby-pamby, hesitating literature. To McNaughton-Jones a spade is a spade, and not an uncertain " agricultural implement."
