This is a short text but a good one on the nourishment and treatment of the child. The first 108 pages are taken up with nutrition, the next 442 with a consideration of general diseases and the last 40 with a description of the measures used in the treatment of children and also in the preparation of various food mixtures. The book is condensed but completely done. In the section on the treatment of diseases, the general characteristics of the diseases are given in fine print and the treatment in larger print. These are not described in detail.
This book gives one a chance to review rapidly any subject which one wishes, and at the same time it states the special points of practically every rare condition which one might encounter.
