This first volume of "Gynecology" represents the work of 79 contributors who are well known in their respective fields. The material presented is in a clear, simple, and understandable style. All of the work is up to date, particularly the special chapter on medications. Little has been spared in the preparation of the excellent illustrations.
The major portion of this volume is devoted to diseases in gynecology; however, it also contains four special chapters—Medications, Special Aids to Diagnosis, Minor Gynecological Surgery, and Physical Therapy—which should be of paramount value to other physicians as well as to gynecologists.
This book should also have special appeal to the general practitioner because of its simplicity of presentation and ready availability of material. It is, furthermore, an excellent reference book for medical students and hospital house staff.
Volume II, which has not been printed, is to be devoted to major and minor gynecological surgery.
