This edition of a well known book can be heartily recommended as a textbook for college students, nurses, or any layman desiring to inform himself in a general way concerning the structure and function of the various elements of the human body and its hygiene. The teacher can easily amplify the subject covered by the text and correct such minor mistakes as appear here and there. The book is simple in outline, lucid in presentation, and accurate in fact. Relieved from the responsibility of treating any one subject in much detail, the authors have succeeded in presenting to the general reader and student the workings of the human mechanism as a whole and its care. It contains all the general information which many educated persons need but do not have. Though not primarily intended for the home, the book ought to be in the library of every family at all
