This is an elaborate book covering the entire field of pediatrics, both in medicine and surgery. The use of small type has enabled the authors to put a vast amount of material into the work without making it unduly bulky. There are twenty-seven chapters and 200 illustrations; these illustrations mostly from photographs of cases under the care of the authors. Little change has been made by the American editor, who thought best to leave the body of the book intact and insert his own views in the appendix. The formulæ were rewritten, except the old system of weights and measures, which are unchanged. This is one of the most useful books on the medical and surgical diseases of children that have recently appeared, and our readers will find it very satisfactory for reference. The teachings are sound and conservative.
