The present volume represents the author's personal experience and much of the matter has already appeared in a larger work on clinical obstetrics. The subject is clearly presented and the material well arranged. The subject of eclampsia receives a considerable amount of attention. Four of the twenty-three chapters are devoted to obstetric operations. The descriptions and directions are clear and explicit. The book is well illustrated, three colored plates showing the condition of the kidney and liver in eclampsia. The book, while intended for students, will also be useful to practitioners who wish a handy guide in difficult cases.
