The appearance of a fifteenth edition of this standard work indicates that many generations of instructors in schools of nursing have found it to be a satisfactory textbook. Economy in print and margins now makes it possible to condense an immense amount of information in an octavo volume. The general format and the many diagrams, photograps and colored plates are excellent features, and we have no doubt that the book will continue to be a leader in the field of nursing education.
