The first edition of this Syllabus was issued in 1889. This second edition has some additions, including chapters on infant feeding, pathology of the puerperium, obstetric operations and dystocia.
In addition to the table of contents, an index has been added, and it is interleaved for convenience in note taking. Being largely based on the course of lectures delivered in that University, it doubtless proves a great convenience to the students of that institution to whom it is dedicated, and no doubt will be so, in perhaps a less degree, to students in other institutions. The author may be congratulated on having been more than ordinarily successful in the task which he undertook in preparing the syllabus.
