This is a small textbook of pediatrics, and contains the usual material found in such a volume. All the necessary facts are given in a readable manner. It is well printed, and the illustrations are well chosen. To the reviewer's mind this is the best short treatise on pediatrics that has appeared to date. It should be invaluable to the student or practitioner who wishes his facts in compact form.
