In the third edition of his book, which is slightly enlarged, Penrose has brought every subject up to date. It has proved to be one of the best works on the diseases of women for the general practitioner, in that minor gynecology is thoroughly covered and the needs of the non-specialists recognized. The illustrations are many, excellent, and useful, and the book as a whole is worthy of the highest commendation as a practical working guide, in a condensed form.
