THE CHANGE OF LIFE

IN

HEALTH AND DISEASE.

OPINIONS OF THE PRESS.

" This volume is an expansion of a much smaller one, wbich made its appearance some years ago. Dr. Tilt has now fairly occupied the field with a work, which is a repertory of information upon a subject not very generally understood. It is divided into twelve chapters: the first five are, an introductory one on the physiology of the change of life, one on its pathology, one on its therapeutics, and one on its hygienics. Then follow chapters which treat consecutively of the diseases of the reproductive organs at this period of life, of the diseases of the digestive organs, and of the skin; the tenth treats of the diseases of the ganglionic nervous system, and the eleventh of the cerebro-spinal affections; and the concluding chapter is miscellaneous. Thus the subject of climacteric derangements is pretty nearly exhausted, and additional value is given to the volume by numerous interesting tables, which exhibit various physiological and pathological facts in a clear and definite manner.

“ There is a fund of practical matter in Dr. Tilt's book, and no small share of theory also, which is very clearly enunciated. As the best work on the subject of which it treats, we can cordially recommend it to the profession.”—Lancet.

" Dr. Tilt has been a very earnest and a very faithful worker in the physiology and diseases of women, and has made contributions to the literature of the subject, which are all of accepted value. His treatise on The Change of Life has probably always been most popular. It is a full, careful, and yet gossiping treatise, founded on a very thorough search of the literature of the subject, and a careful digestion of clinical examples. has, too, its own seal of originality, and is altogether one of those books which do not fail to arrest attention and arouse interest, and which succeed in stamping the author as a good clinical observer and writer, even if they do not mark any definite progress in science.”British Medical Journal.
