One is at once impressed that this is a well printed book. The paper is good; the type and illustrations are clear; the binding is substantial and imparts a pleasurable sensation to the hand. The subject matter is clearly and interestingly presented. The illustrations seem of little value in setting forth the purpose of the book. They seemed to have been gathered from sources not particularly related to the subject matter. In places the subject matter did not seem well arranged. One can hardly understand, for example, why the discussion of the prevention of tuberculosis and hay-fever should be in the same chapter. This volume is intended as a textbook for nurses and can be recommended for this purpose.
