This edition is presented to its readers with the collaboration of a new editor. L. T. Royster has succeeded Godfrey Pisek, recently deceased. Portions of the book have been rewritten in the attempt to bring them to date. The introductory chapters on the care and hygiene of children and diseases of the new-born, and the section on growth and development, as well as the succeeding chapters on the examination of the sick child, general therapeutics and suggestions for diagnosis, are well written and contain valuable information. The chapter on the infant from the nutritional standpoint is a suggestive and original treatise, representing the authors' view on the biologic standards of infant feeding.
