This volume, which is dedicated to Dr. Abraham Jacobi, has been written for physicians, especially that class who "have not had the advantage of hospital training, and who go to a post-graduate school in order to learn gynecology;" and also for " that larger class who would like to go to such an establishment but who find it impossible to leave their practice;" and finally, for "undergraduates studying in medical colleges."
The work is therefore intended to be one for the general practitioner and medical student, but the surgeon will find much to interest him, and he will turn to this work for hurried consultation much oftener than to some of the more elaborate "text-books" and "systems." The later and standard operations are described concisely. A chapter on sterility and its treatment concludes the volume. The illustrations are excellent, many of them original, and the book is well printed.
