The general principles of hygiene are brought together in this work in a convenient form for the medical student and physician and the author has carried his work more particularly to matters of school, military and naval hygiene than was perhaps formerly the custom in works of this kind. The treatment of the subjects is necessarily rather concise, but the facts are clearly stated. In a general way we can say that the work is one that possesses decided advantages for the American physican and student. He gives quite a full reproduction of the quarantine laws of the United States and also of Pennsylvania quarantine legislation. A brief and useful appendix giving a conversion of the different weights and measures into the metric system, and quite a full index, add to the value of the work.
