This handbook on first aid was brought out in England and has been well known there since its first publication in 1901. It is divided into two parts, the first dealing with the form and functions of the body—admirably brief and suitably illustrated —and the second with first aid. The latter, according to the preface, has been practically rewritten in the light of the reviser's special interest in air raid first aid. The sections on wounds from war weapons, war gases from the first aid point of view and the collection and immediate care of air raid casualties, including those affected or contaminated by gas, are especially noteworthy. The book is of handy pocket size and is suitably indexed. It is one of the best and most reliable books in the field.
