The landmarks in gynecology which the author considers of chief importance are "anatomy," "menstruation," "labor," "abortion,""gonorrhea," "tumors." Exactly why they should be called landmarks, it is a little difficult to understand, but inasmuch as the matter is correct it is of little consequence what title shall be given.
The author is well known as a frequent contributor to this and other journals, an indefatigable worker, and untiring investigator. The present book is an abstract of some of his lectures delivered at the Post-Graduate Medical School.
In conclusion, the author, himself an experienced operator, offers the following practical suggestions: 1, remember it is criminal to learn to do a laparotomy on a patient; 2, do not attempt to do a laparotomy in a private house with no nurses; 3, before undertaking laparotomy, study under a master and a system, if possible, so that you can see the pathology in the abdomen
