Volume VII is one of the largest of those included in this new encyclopedia. It goes from "hyperchlorhydria" to "leukorrhea" and includes particularly important articles on such subjects as hypnotism, immunity, impotence, industrial accidents, infant feeding, insurance, diseases of the joints, labor, diseases of the larynx, and leprosy. Obviously, most important is the section on labor, which occupies more than 170 pages and thus constitutes a brief textbook of obstetrics. This book is as beautifully prepared and printed as are the other volumes of the series and presents adequately British points of view in relationship to the subjects discussed.
