The Practitioners Library of Medicine and Surgery.
Volume VI: Obstetrics and Gynecology. [George Blumer, Supervising editor]. Associate editor: Luther K. Musselman, B.S., Ph.D., M.D., Associate Clinical Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Yale University School of Medicine. Cloth. Price, $10 per volume. Pp. 900, with illustrations. New York & London: D. Appleton-Century Company, 1934.These new additions to the Practitioners Library are on a par with the previously published volumes. They constitute essentially individual systems of "Traumatic Surgery" and "Obstetrics and Gynecology." The authors have been selected from a variety of institutions and have developed the topics they discuss according to simple and systematic outlines. The publisher has been extraordinarily generous in the provision of illustrations. The volume on "Obstetrics and Gynecology" is competent. The authors chosen are thoroughly familiar with the most recent literature of their subjects and the bibliographic references include not only recent contributions but also classic contributions
