It is now just four years since the first edition of this work was given to the public; and the favorable reception of that and the second edition rather preclude the necessity of an extended notice of this, the third edition. Many changes in the text have been made in the present edition, and in some cases entire subjects have been rewritten; changes that have been rendered necessary by the great strides that have been made in scientific midwifery during the past three or four years. The facts that the book has been so favorably received in this country and abroad, and that it has been translated into Spanish, French and Italian are sufficient to show that it has most unusual merits.
