No one can read this monograph without coming to the conviction that the prize was worthily bestowed. The work, while mainly a compilation, shows such judicious and thorough gleaning in the field of medical literature, that nearly everything of value on the subject will be found. There are thirty-eight chapters in which the various causes of infantile mortality are fully discussed. The arrangement is logical, and it will be a very welcome addition to the library of the general practitioner, the obstetrician and the student.
