In this edition of this excellent work, the author has thoroughly revised the text and elaborated some of the sections. Many new illustrations and plates have been added. An apology is made for those illustrations in which rubber gloves are not shown on operator's hands, because of the difficulty of neat reproduction of such pictures. The book is marked by an excellent conservatism; for instance, in his discussion of "twilight sleep" and of the value of the Abderhalden test, the author realizes that neither the radical enthusiast nor the bitter opponents of these procedures have reached the correct points of view.
