This little manual contains some features that are not included in most works of this kind. The author has described rather fully his antiseptic method of making postmortems, by the use of photographers' gloves, and mercury bin-iodid solution, which he prefers to the bichlorid solution. There is also a special section on the legal aspects of postmortems, and on certificates of death. We commend the book.
