The author of this volume is a widely recognized authority on the anatomy and physiology of the fetus and on teratology. In this work he gives his attention mainly to fetal physiology and pathology. In its preparation he has studied nearly three hundred specimens and has mastered all the important articles which have been published by other workers. As a collector of observations Dr. Ballantyne is comprehensive and accurate, and is always careful to distinguish facts from speculations. This volume must at once take an authoritative place among medical works. Apart from its value as a storehouse of observations, it is certain to serve as stimulus to all who desire to carry on original research. The author points out the many gaps in our knowledge of fetal physiology and pathology and suggests many lines of inquiry.
