This is a complete textbook of pediatrics, including discussions of feeding, contagious diseases and common cutaneous and surgical conditions as well as of the usual disturbances of children. The author has done a good piece of work in presenting the entire field of pediatrics in so small a space. The descriptions are complete and orderly, the illustrations are well chosen and the book is readable. Considerable space is given to treatment, and many prescriptions are included. The publishers have printed and bound this book excellently.
