THE WORK COVERS QUITE FTJLLY THE GENERAL FIELD OF GYNECOLOGICAL SURGERY,
AND IS ENRICHED BY MORE THAN FIVE HUNDRED ORIGINAL ILLUSTRATIONS, WHICH
FROM A SCIENTIFIC AS WELL AS FROM AN ARTISTIC STANDPOINT ARE EQUALLED BY
THOSE OF NO OTHER WORK EXTANT, Expense and labour have not been spared in
the preparation of the drawings for the illustrations, or in their reproduction for
the books, of which, by their accuracy in detail and clearness in delineation, they
form a very important and valuable part. The work does not appeal to the
gynecological surgeon only, but is one which will be found of inestimable value to
the general practitioner and to the surgeon, whose practices bring them in contact
with gynecological cases. Dr. Kelly has had a long and successful career as a
gynecological surgeon, and his experience has fitted him pre-eminently for the
preparation of a work such as he has written.

Dictionary of Terms and Words used in Medicine and
Surgery. By JOHN M. KEATING, M.D., editor of "Cyclopaedia of Dis-
eases of Children," etc., author of the "New Pronouncing Dictionary of

Price, cloth, 2s 6d net.
This new and comprehensive work of reference is the outcome of a demand for a
more modern handbook of its class than those at present on the market, which,

not containing the hundreds of new words now used in current literature,
especially those relating to Electricity and Bacteriology.

EXTANT IN ENGLISH."—The Philadelphia Poly clinic.
