The &item and Art of Nursing the Sick. By /Eneas

Munro, M.D. (Maclehose, Glasgow.)—Dr. Munro's book will prove a valuable manual to the nurse who has missed early training for her work, and also to the increasing number of those who arc being specially trained for nurses. Dr. Munro observes that there are few books on the subject, and these are often" sadly lacking in detail or minute accurate de- scription of the management of the sick." This want he endeavours in the present work to supply. And certainly he has brought much patient painstaking to the task ; the nurse must be dell indeed who fails to com- prehend his instructions. Unlike most books of this class, the present work is intended rather for the professional than for the amateur nurse.
