This work treats of many points in the examination of infants generally overlooked in the larger text-books. Kilmer mentions the different types of children and the ways of handling each. The causes of a baby's cry are enumerated with the means of distinguishing them. The various steps in a physical examination—mensuration, palpation, examination of eyes and ears, etc.—are given, and each step is shown in illustrations. The book should be of value to every general practitioner and especially to the recent graduate.
