This is a small sized volume of 224 pages, published in good style and fully illustrated. The author says in the preface: " The object of this manual is to instruct those who are desirous of knowing what course to pursue in emergencies, in order that sick or injured may be temporarily relieved. Special effort has been made to arrange the matter and introduce such points as will be of use to the ambulance corps connected with the different military organizations." From a cursory examination of the contents of the book we think the author has succeeded well in accomplishing the object just stated.
