This is a recent edition of the work published by Dr. Ireland two years ago, which has already found its place in medical literature, and which was itself really a second edition of an earlier, though smaller volume. No very extensive addition has been made to the present work, though it has been revised and brought up to date. Dr. Ireland is thoroughly acquainted with American work in this line, as indeed every one should be, and his references to American authors are numerous and appreciative. The work will maintain its well-earned place as a standard on the subjects of defective and idiotic conditions in children.
