Ambulance Work. By R. Lawton Roberts, M.D. (H. K. Lewis).

—Dr. Roberts begins by giving a brief description of the human body, speaking of the skeleton, muscular and nervous systems, circulation of blood, respiration, &o., and concludes his first chapters by some remarks on the first aid to be given in cases of emergency. The second lecture is devoted to the subject of "Haemorrhage," the third to " Broken Bones," the fourth to " Sudden Attacks of Illness," and the fifth to " Methods of Lifting and Carrying the Sick or Injured." The book is plentifully illustrated, and seems excellently adapted to its purpose.
