Since the appearance of the last volume of Keating's Cyclopedia a number of years have intervened, and this supplemental volume is, therefore, the more welcome to its readers. The articles here published are certainly not less meritorious or valuable than those in the earlier volume, and they bring our knowledge of the subjects fairly up to the year 1898. Some omissions of subjects are noticeable, but the work is as a whole a comprehensive and very valuable addition to literature of children's diseases. The list of the authors, including as it does such names as those of Hare, Osler, Lennox Browne, Jacobi, DaCosta, Starr, Ashhurst, Kelly, and others hardly if any less well and favorably known, would promise this, and careful perusal will confirm all expectations.
