This small book is well fitted for the purposes which it is to serve, namely, to convey the main points of pediatrics to medical students and general practitioners and to afford a basis for lectures to medical students. It is well illustrated and well got up. Some of the colored illustrations are excellent. In order to condense the material into a small number of pages, it has been necessary to use a fine type which is rather hard to read. On the whole the book is to be recommended for the purposes mentioned.
