This textbook of obstetrics covers its field in much the same manner as the Döderlein-Krönig textbook covers the field of gynecology. The work, as built up by Runge, was in its eleventh edition. The present is the third edition issued under the editorship of Jaschke and Pankow. As with most German textbooks, one of the most important features is the illustrations. There are numerous excellently colored lithographed reproductions of both gross appearances and microscopic sections that are not available in other textbooks. The authors call attention to the fact that the sections on physiology of the new-born and on the pathology of pregnancy have been especially revised. The literary references apparently do not cover literature later than 1920, and there are virtually no references to American work.
