PREFACE TO THE FOURTH EDITION.
THE present Edition of the PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICE OF OBSTETRICS has been thoroughly revised, and some important additions made, which, I trust, will not be unacceptable to the reader. Besides alluding more particularly than I had previously done to the interesting subjects of Anæsthetics, and Twin-pregnancy, I have devoted an entire Lecture to the complications of Pregnancy, in which are discussed various topics of importance, such, for example, as Chorea, Paralysis, Jaundice, etc., which cannot, I think, fail to elicit the attention of the Obstetric Student.
