This work, of two volumes, is perhaps the most complete book on pediatrics written by any two men. Not only are the authors' own views expressed, but also there are given in the text references to all the important works on the various subjects under discussion. It is hard to overvalue a work of this kind, since it has in it so much that is of use, and since it has not neglected that personal element which is so valuable in any textbook. One cannot pick out a chapter here and there as most deserving of praise, because the book throughout is of the same general character. The general practitioner or the pediatrician will find in it a comprehensive résumé on almost any subject in pediatrics. The illustrations are excellent and well chosen, and the numerous color plates are especially good.
