This is the second edition of a book that has already been before the medical public for some years. The author states that it has been extensively revised, and from the assistance she has had we should think that it is thoroughly up to date. What the nurse ought to know in regard to physiology and anatomy seems to be pretty well comprised within these pages. A valuable feature of this book is an extensive glossary at the end. While a large part of the book is given up to the subject of physiology, we notice that the pages are all headed "Anatomy for Nurses," which strikes one as an oversight, though of slight importance. The illustrations appear to be generally very good and are sufficiently numerous to be a valuable aid to the class of readers for which it is intended.
