The present—second—edition contains a number of new paragraphs and several new chapters. A chapter on the relation of the pathology of the blood to gynecologic diagnosis and another on the bacteriology of the female genital tract give clear ideas of these important subjects. A number of new plates and engravings have also been added, and some of the cuts of less useful instruments omitted. The paragraphs on "Cystic Disease of the Ovary" have been rewritten, the theory of the etiology of this disease introduced and the recent literature carefully reviewed. Valuable additions to the chapter on the urinary organs have been made. Exfoliative endometritis and abscess of the uterus, both omitted in the first edition, have been taken up here. This is an extremely practical book, and a very valuable one for the student and practitioner.
