The author's object was to give, in rather more detail than is usual in works of this kind, the principal points that the mother or nurse should know in regard to the care of the child in its earliest months of life. With this in mind, Kilmer has included many illustrations as to the proper methods of holding the infant, etc., and these are a valuable addition. A diet schedule and a brief account of the disorders to which they are liable is added in the latter part of the book. The advice, of course, is not for home treatment, for the physician is almost universally recommended to be called in, but the recognition of the conditions is often very important. The book will be a very useful one for the inexperienced mother or nurse.
