The second edition of this work shows careful revision and change of arrangement. The rules governing selection of applicants have been greatly amplified, tuberculosis, appendicitis and diseases of the heart are even more exhaustively considered than in the first edition, and a great deal has been added to the section on the insurance of women. The bearing of occupation on the value of risks for insurance is mentioned at great length and a report of the collective investigation of the Actuarial Society of America has been added.
