The new edition of this excellent book has been rewritten to bring it up to date. It is dedicated in memory of Dr. Godfrey R. Pisek, whose untimely death cut short a brilliant career. The co-author with Dr. Chapin is now Dr. Royster.
Much of the edition has necessarily been rewritten and some of the chapters are considerably enlarged. Those on "Scarlet Fever" and other communicable diseases have received special consideration, and contain excellent colored illustrations of these conditions. New illustrations have been added in other parts of the book, and an entirely new chapter has been written on "The Care of the Dependent Infants and Children," giving a valuable discussion of the subject. The book should have the same success as has had all previous editions.
