In the last year we have had some notable works on diseases of children. The volume under consideration compares favorably with other recent works and in some respects it is in advance. The work is well illustrated and is very comprehensive from a medical standpoint, the strictly surgical topics in connection with pediatrics being omitted. The discussion of nutrition and foods is very complete.

The old-fashioned dosage by "apothecaries" weight, long since abandoned in the Pharmacopeia, mars an otherwise valuable work.
