This is a text-book for students. The author has compiled with good judgment from Leishman, Playfair, and Lusk, a fair outline of the essential principles of midwifery, and has done his work so well that graduates as well as students will find the manual a convenient one.

It is, however, confessedly a work for beginners. Its discriptions are terse and clear, its directions bluntly stated, without unnecessary explanations.

The use of short paragraphs with capitalized headings, makes reference quick and certain, and aids the memory of the learner in preparing for examinations. This is a type of book now becoming quite common in America, an admirable type too, for the purpose intended.
