This volume, one of the numerous Hoepli manuals, is a hand-book for instruction to mental nurses and asylum attendants, covering apparently the whole ground of their duties. It has the advantage of considering certain subjects which are not ordinarily discussed in nursing-manuals; thus the methods of transporting patients to asylums, distinctions between real and apparent death, the ethics of the business of attendants on the insane, etc., are fully discussed. It is a very excellent little work in its way.
