This book is a small compendium of treatment and covers very completely the conditions seen in children. The author discusses systematically general symptomatic therapy, feeding of healthy children, disturbances of nutrition, and the diseases of the new-born, of infants and of older children. Wherever possible, the question of prophylaxis is also considered. The directions are simple, clear and concise. For American readers, however, the book has the disadvantage of recommending certain proprietary remedies, which are not familiar.
